Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program

Closes 14 September 2018.

Does your sports club need a defibrillator? The Office of Sport is providing funding to buy one.

Who is eligible to apply?

• Incorporated, not-for-profit grassroots sports clubs in NSW.

• Applications from licenced sporting clubs may be considered providing the project directly benefits the sport and not the licensed premises.

• Applications may be considered from sport clubs associated with a school, church or university providing they are an incorporated not for profit club in their own right.

• Applications may be considered from councils on behalf of a number of eligible sports clubs that currently share facilities based in NSW and will be involved as partners in any project to acquire one or more Automatic Electronic Defibrillators for the shared facilities.

For more information, including guidelines and how to apply, visit the Office of Sport website.
