Sport and active recreation volunteer grants now open

8 October 2023

Northern Territory peak sporting bodies and active recreation organisations can now apply for their share of $100,000 in grants to develop and support their volunteers.

The NT Sport and Active Recreation Volunteer Development Grants are part of the Territory Labor Government’s Sport Volunteer Action Plan to help upskill and support the volunteers.

Volunteers donate their time and effort into sporting and active recreation activities across the NT. They perform a range of roles including coaching, officiating and other key positions on committees and in team management.

The grants aim to assist organisations in developing best practice planning, recruitment and recognition programs and retention strategies to increase and better equip our volunteers.

Giving volunteers the opportunity to expand their skillset will improve how our sporting and active recreation clubs are run.

The Territory Labor Government will continue to invest in grassroots sports and recreational organisations who play a vital role in bringing our community together.
