Grants open to help sports upgrade facilities

Sporting organisations across Canberra can now apply for support to upgrade their facilities to help increase community access and participation opportunities through the Capital Assistance Program.

Sporting clubs and facilities can apply for funding up to $100,000 to support capital investment, such new LED lighting, solar power systems, upgrades to storage facilities or female friendly bathroom renovations.

Upgrades including female-friendly amenities is of particular issue for a number of clubs and upgrading facilities to meet the needs of women and girls is one really simple way to vastly improve female participation in sport.
