Help at hand for sport

ARE your town's sporting facilities tired and in need of a boost?

Maranoa MP David Littleproud wants your sports group to apply for $29.7 million in Federal Government funding to improve local sports facilities.

"I encourage all local community sporting groups to apply to upgrade their sports facilities,” Mr Littleproud said.

"The grants range right up to $500,000. I want our local communities to have good sports grounds, courts and pavilions.”

Eligible applications must come from not for-profit organisations. The projects will be assessed against three selection criteria including community participation, community need and project design and delivery.

Applications close ib September 14.
