Sporting clubs in the Lilley electorate can now apply for a share in the Albanese Government’s $200 million Play Our Way program to support new and upgraded facilities and equipment for women and girls.

Northside clubs can start preparing their submissions following the release of the Play Our Way program Grant Guidelines.

Play Our Way supports not-for-profit and sporting organisations to deliver initiatives to make sport more welcoming and equitable for women and girls.

Applicants will be able to apply for up to $1.5 million for new and upgraded facilities, and up to $1 million for projects that support programs or deliver new or upgraded equipment specifically for women and girls.

Grants will be available in two streams:

  • Facilities – for projects that establish and improve sporting facilities that are designed for women and girls and further encourage them to take part in sport and physical activity by better meeting their needs; and
  • Participation and equipment – for programs that encourage women and girls to participate and remain involved in sport and physical activity for life, by tackling barriers such as disadvantage or lack of equipment.

The deadline for applications is 29 April 2024.

The grant program was designed with the assistance of experts across sport and government, including Tal Karp, Lauren Jackson AO, Liz Ellis AO and Madison de Rozario OAM.

Applications will be assessed through an impartial, transparent process, led by the Department of Health and Aged Care.
