Status: OPEN

Applications are open until 14 May 2021 or when program funds are exhausted and applications will be assessed on a ‘first-in’ basis.


The National / International Sport Championships Program provides grants to eligible organisations to assist in meeting costs associated with hosting a national or international sport championship event within Tasmania.


To be eligible for funding, a national or international sport championship event must be:

Funding available

Approximately $40 000 will be available for allocation in 2020-21.

A maximum of $6 000 is available per organisation and per sport during 2020-21.
