Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program Now Open

SHARE: 

Posted: Fri, 7th Dec 2018

Applications are open now and close on 6 May 2019.

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program allocates $4 million over four years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). An AED is a life saving device which delivers a controlled shock to an individual experiencing cardiac arrest, increasing their chances of survival. The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program provides NSW sports clubs and councils the opportunity to acquire an AED package for their club or sports facility at a reduced cost. Sporting organisations and councils will be able to choose from a panel of approved AED Panel Service Providers and a variety of AED packaged services with the level of customer service that meets their needs.

 

Who can apply?

 

 

How much funding is available?

 

Based on zones grants are available up to 50 % of the AED packages for zones 1 and 2 with up to 75% in zone 3.

The maximum grant amounts are:

Zone     Maximum Grant Amount

1          $1,250

2          $1,300

3          $1,900
