Grants provide pathways to participation in sport

  • Nearly $370,000 awarded to sports organisations to support low participation groups to get involved in physical activity
  • Funding shared between 18 local community and sporting organisations across WA
  • Diverse range of projects supported under the program

A dedicated tenpin bowling program for Western Australians with disability and a program linking vulnerable young women to junior cricket clubs are among 18 initiatives that have received a boost thanks to State Government funding.

The Targeted Participation Program (TPP) provides funding to enable organisations to promote participation and engagement in sport and active recreation, particularly among low participation groups.

The program supports a diverse range of projects targeting Aboriginal participants, teenage girls, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability, seniors, and disengaged youth.

Twelve regional and six metropolitan organisations will share in nearly $370,000 under the current grant round.

The TPP is a joint initiative between the McGowan Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and Healthway.
