The Coffs Harbour electorate will receive $50,000 in funding for local sports clubs and community initiatives, said Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser.

Mr Fraser said sport was the lifeblood of our local community and investment in local sport was an important focus for the community.

Mr Fraser said the projects were among 831 that have received funding as part of the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

Successful applicants are:

 Sawtell Toormina Australian Rules Football Club

 AFL North Coast

 Modern Pentathlon NSW Inc.

 Coffs Coast Outrigger Canoe Club

 Coffs Harbour Basketball Association Inc.

 Sawtell Croquet Club Inc.

 Coffs Harbour Netball Association.

“The program provides grants of up to $20,000 towards projects to assist regions with rallying the community together and ensuring ongoing involvement in sport,” Mr Fraser said.

“The NSW Government is committed to supporting grassroots sport and improving participation rates across the state.

“We know that sport has many proven health, social and economic outcomes and I encourage eligible clubs to apply for the next round of funding.

“Projects that are eligible include upgrades to local amenities or improving access to facilities, training programs and community events.”

Program applications open in late 2018.
