Sporting organisations across the Goulburn electorate can now apply for grants to help remove barriers to participation, purchase equipment and improve facilities, under the NSW Government's local sport grants program.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the funding would provide a welcome lift to local sporting organisations.
"I know how important sport is to the community right across the Goulburn electorate." Mrs Tuckerman said.
"The grant will help local clubs increase participation by addressing barriers, delivering sports development programs and upgrading equipment and facilities."
Minister for sport Natalie Ward said the grants would help to support the health, social and economic wellbeing of communities.
"Sport brings communities together and goes far beyond the physical benefits," Ms Ward said.
"It strengthens social networks and can be a vehicle for skills development and job creation.
"As we return to community sport, this funding will support projects of grassroots sporting clubs which are at the centre of many local communities."
Successful clubs can receive funding of up to $20,000, with up to $50,000 available for each electorate throughout NSW.
Applications are now open and close at 1pm on Friday, November 19.
