GET STARTED VOUCHERS PROGRAM
Round 13 of the Queensland Government’s Get Started Vouchers program will open at 8.00am on 6 February 2019.
A voucher of up to $150 per calendar year is available for eligible children/young people aged 5 to 17, who hold or whose parent/carer/guardian holds, a valid Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card. Vouchers are then presented to registered sport or active recreation clubs to help with the costs of membership.
When a child or young person does not have access to a Centrelink Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession Card but the family is in genuine financial need, or if the family is experiencing issues that would prevent them from applying directly (e.g. computer/internet access issues, computer illiteracy or language as a barrier), a referral agent can refer the child to the program.
Please ensure that you have created a QGrants account beforehand or logged into your existing account, to ensure that you are ready to apply once the round opens.
