Federal LNP Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz is calling on sport and physical activity providers in Wright to apply for funding for a national $28.9million program aimed at encouraging Australians to get more active.
Mr Buchholz urged all sporting groups in the region to create or enhance programs that would help attract people across a wide range of age, ability and location to participate in physical activity and sport.
“We know just how important sport and physical activity is to helping both children and adults lead a happy, healthy life,” Mr Buchholz said.
“Our goal is to get more locals more active more often.
“I encourage eligible organisations to consider impactful ways to innovate with new programs, or enhance existing physical activity initiatives that will improve the lives of all Aussies across our community.
The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity.
Applications opened on Monday January 7th 2019 and close on 18th of February 2019 with more information on the Move It Aus – Participation Grants at sportaus.gov.au/participationgrants
