Vouchers on offer to help kids get involved in sport
A NEW decade of sport is upon us and a number of clubs throughout the South Burnett region are about to get the ball rolling for 2020.
Participating in sport or physical activity from a young age can be greatly beneficial, however sometimes costs can get in the way.
Applications for the second round of the Queensland Government's FairPlay vouchers open today and offer $150 per child, per year.
Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a $150 voucher to go towards sport and active recreation membership, registration or fees.
Alternatively, children can be referred by a registered referral agent.
Applicants must create an account for QGrants online to access the grant.
Applications close on April 1, and vouchers expire on May 13.
A full directory of eligible sports under the scheme can be found here.
For applications and more information, visit www.wld.gov.au or call 13 QGOV (1343 2584).
