Funding and grant eligibility

We are proud to provide a broad range of sport and active recreation funding and grants programs.

Each program has specific outcomes developed to deliver on the Activate! Queensland: 2019-2029 strategy to empower more Queenslanders to enjoy physical activity and improve their health and wellbeing.

Each program and associated frameworks, procedures and processes comply with the Queensland Treasury Financial Accountability Handbook, Volume 6 – Grant Management.

Sport and recreation eligibility framework

Accelerate 2022-2025

Accelerate 2022-2025 (PDF, 3.0MB) is the second action plan under Activate! Queensland. To ensure eligibility of our funding and grants programs maintain alignment with Activate! Queensland, and Accelerate 2022-2025, we have developed an eligibility framework that informs eligibility decisions through 5 principles.

Eligibility framework principles

  • Principle 1 - Risk to the Queensland Government is considered when determining the eligibility of activities and organisations
  • Principle 2 - Eligibility directly correlates with Accelerate program objectives and outcomes to support participation opportunities
  • Principle 3 - Eligibility will be established to ensure entities, with the appropriate risk mitigation requirements, are funded to align with funding and grants program outcomes
  • Principle 4 - Human Rights will be considered when developing program eligibility
  • Principle 5 - Where another government agency has portfolio responsibility, eligibility would only be considered through coordinated effort to achieve program outcomes

Funding and grant eligibility requests

Please note eligibility for each program can be found within the program guidelines.

Contact your local Sport and Recreation office if you have any questions regarding funding and grants eligibility for your activity or organisation.
