Funding and grants for sport, recreation and fitness organisations

Funding and grants for sport, recreation and fitness organisations

As part of Return to Play, we’re helping community sport, recreation and fitness organisations with a range of funding and grants.

That’s why the Queensland Government has committed $51.3 million for a COVID Safe restart for sport, recreation and fitness organisations.

Getting Queenslanders active is a key priority of the government, and restarting activities in stages will ensure we keep everyone safe, healthy and moving.
