A new funding program from the Queensland Government aims to encourage
greater physical and sporting activities among Queenslanders.
The new 'Get Playing Plus' funding program initiated by the Queensland
Government’s Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing will
assist councils and community not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations
to identify, develop and deliver infrastructure projects to enable more
Queenslanders to participate in sport and recreational activity.
MakMax Australia suggests the installation of fabric roofing systems and
umbrellas to offer shade solutions at a variety of sporting venues. Such an investment
is likely to lead to increased sports participation, greater community
involvement, more spectators and a boost to sporting club memberships and
The department will provide grants ranging from a minimum of $400,000 up
to a maximum of $1,500,000 for approved projects.
Submission of proposals to the department for Stage 1 of the project will
close on 20 October 2014. Proposals must be submitted directly to the local
Sports and Recreation Services office.
