Posted: Thu, 2nd Nov 2017

This grant program allocates $4 million over four years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs).

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program is now accepting applications.

This grant program allocates $4 million over four years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automatic 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 Office of Sport encourages State Sporting Organisations to pass this information onto their affiliated clubs.

Eligible applicants are:

• Incorporated, not-for-profit grassroots sports clubs in NSW

• Applications from licenced sporting clubs may be considered providing the project directly benefits the sport and not the licensed premises.

• Applications may be considered from sport clubs associated with a school, church or university providing they are an incorporated not for profit club in their own right.

• Applications may be considered from councils on behalf of a number of eligible sports clubs that currently share facilities based in NSW and will be involved as partners in any project to acquire one or more Automatic External Defibrillators for the shared facilities.

Applications close 20 December 2017.

For more information, including guidelines and how to apply, visit the Office of Sport website.
