GET STARTED GOVERNMENT GRANTS

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?

You will be able to apply for a voucher under the first round of the program from 22 January 2015 to 05 February 2015..

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.
