The Tasmanian Government supports Tasmanians participating in sport and leading a healthy and active lifestyle and providing opportunities to host elite level competitions.
Applications for the grants under the annual National/International Sport Championships Program 2020-21 are now open.
Under these grants, $40,000 will be provided to eligible sporting organisations to host national and international championships within Tasmania between 12 October 2020 and 30 November 2021.
In 2019-20, the program provided funding of $40,000 to 13 sport and recreation organisations to assist with the hosting of championships, including the Mountain Bike Australia, National Gravity Enduro Championships, the Paddle Australia Canoe Slalom Age Championships, and the Triathlon Tasmania Inc, Paratriathlon World Series.
The 2020-21 program will be especially important as sporting organisations around the state recover and rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program will be open for applications until 14 May 2021, or until program funds are exhausted.
