The Tasmanian Government acknowledges the impact of COVID-19 and resulting sporting competition postponements and cancellations on revenues for the organisations that support these activities.
Consistent with the Government’s intention to keep Tasmanians in work, where possible, and to ensure these sports can continue once the public health advice enables this to occur, the Government announced $2 million in grants for the sport sector to be administered through the Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) Division of Communities Tasmania.
Tranche 1 of the COVID-19 Sport and Recreation Grants Program provided sporting organisations with grants of up to $150 000 to assist with maintaining employment for six months in eligible sporting organisations facing reduced revenue streams due to COVID-19.
Tranche 2 of this funding provided sport and active recreation clubs and associations with grants of up to $3 000 to assist with hygiene and equipment purchases to comply with the relevant Return to Play plan.
