National/International Sport Championships Program


This program aims to promote and develop sport by encouraging national and international level competition in Tasmania. It seeks to assist in meeting costs associated with hosting a national or international sport championship event within Tasmania.

Grants of up to $6,000 is available per organisation and per sport during 2017-18.

Funding limits are as follow:
- $1,000 for championship events held on a single day or for one or more stage(s) of a national or international championship series
- $3,000 for one championship event held over two or more consecutive days

A total funding pool of approximately $40,000 is available in 2017-18.
