Sporting grants announced

Forrest MHR Nola Marino is urging sporting groups in the South West to apply for funding through the Community Sport Infrastructure grant program.

The program was launched last week and allows sport and community organisations to apply for grants up to $500,000 to upgrade sporting infrastructure.

Mrs Marino said sporting facilities were vital for inspiring physical activity and health while also building community spirit.

“Even the smallest of facility projects can have a big impact on boosting local business, economy, health and social cohesiveness,” she said.
