Get Started Grants
YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE WITH YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION FEE
What is Get Started?
Get Started assists children and young people who can least afford or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club. Eligible children and young people can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 (GST exclusive), which can be redeemed at a sport or recreation club registered with Get Started.
Who can apply?
The following applicants are eligible for a Get Started voucher: · children and young people from the age of five and under the age of 18 who hold or whose parent, guardian or carer holds a Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and are residents of Queensland · other children or young people identified by two referral agents.
How do I get a voucher?
There are a number of rounds during the year to apply. These will generally be published on our Facebook page.
If a child is eligible for Get Started, they are not guaranteed a voucher. The funding will be distributed in two rounds each year on a first come, first serve basis. Once the allocation for each round is exhausted, the program will close and no further vouchers will be offered for that round.
