Grants and subsidies for rowing in Queensland are typically made available through various government bodies, sporting organisations, and community programs. These funding opportunities aim to support the development, growth, and sustainability of rowing activities and clubs in the region. While specific programs and eligibility criteria may change over time, here are some potential sources of grants and subsidies for our Queensland Clubs and Scvhools.



Active Women and Girls Program

The program, which opens for applications on Monday 20 November, is dedicated to encouraging greater participation across all facets of sport and active recreation, from playing to coaching and volunteering to umpiring and team management. Funding can be used across a range of focus areas, such as volunteer training, resources, equipment or creating more participation opportunities for women and girls within clubs, communities and organisations.


There are 2 categories for eligibility under this program. Local clubs can apply for $7,500 (GST exclusive) under Category 1. Local government authorities and state-level sport and active recreation organisations can apply for $25,000 (GST exclusive)under Category 2.
