Embracing 2018 Healthy and Active Program Legacy Project
(with the Office of the Commonwealth Games)

A limited number of individual grants of up to $400 (plus GST) are available to support young people aged between 14-24 who are living in a situation of social disadvantage to undertake an Award and assist with the costs of the Physical Recreation Section.

The grants must be used to pay for the Participant's registration to do the Award (new registrations only) and the remaining amount can be used towards full or partial costs associated with the Physical Recreation Section, including such costs as registration fees for sporting/recreational clubs, fees for club uniforms or cost of equipment/apparel.

Award Units can apply for a maximum of 10 people. 

Only new Award registrations are eligible to apply (i.e. applicants have either never done an Award or have previously completed an Award level. They cannot be completing an Award at the time of application).

All applicants must be 14-24 years of age.

All applications will be subject to assessment by a panel of reviewers. Successful applicants will be those who meet all criteria as outlined by the application form and are deemed to have the greatest need.
