  • One application for each level will be considered in any 12 month period (ie, it must be 12 months since you last received funding before you can apply again).
  • Sport & Recreation – applications will only be considered for State Representation when the selection is supported by the Peak Body of the Sport. For example, Calisthenics Association, FFSA, Athletics SA, Gymnastics Association etc). Applications will not be considered for representation at the local level eg clubs taking a group interstate/overseas.
  • Sporting & Recreationapplications for school organised events – applications for school organised sporting events will only be considered if the application can be supported by a letter from the organising association (eg SAPSASA, Christian Schools Association etc).
