Emergency funding grants of $20,000 and $5,000 are available to Queensland not-for-profit sport and active recreation clubs to help them get back on their feet after recent flood events.
Applications for grants of up to $20,000 are jointly funded through the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) which are now open.
These Emergency DRFA grants are designed to help sporting and active recreation clubs hit by extreme weather to recover and get back on their feet and assist them with clean-up costs and repairing or replacing flood damaged equipment.
DRFA applications can be made at: www.qra.qld.gov.au
In addition the State Government had also made grants of up to $5,000 available to help eligible clubs with immediate flood clean-up costs including skip hire, cleaning supplies, electrical safety checks, PPE gear, and replacing damaged equipment.
Clubs can apply for up to $5,000 in State grant funding to reimburse invoices already paid for flood recovery.
Applications for State grants of up to $5000 are open until the end of May through the Level One Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program at https://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/disaster-recovery
