Indigenous Sports Grants Program

2019-20 Indigenous Sports Grants Program (ISGP) is open for applications

The ACT Government's ISGP is a grants program for eligible individuals seeking support for their participation in sport and recreation activities.

The primary objective of the ISGP is to make participation opportunities in sport and recreation more accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly people that are disadvantaged. The ISGP has an emphasis on a structured, frequent level of participation that supports positive health, social and wellbeing outcomes.

Funding for the ISGP is provided to the ACT Government through the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s (DPM&C) Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS).

There have been some changes to the program’s administration in 2019/20 – these changes are aimed at increasing community awareness/engagement with the funding opportunity and to simplify the administrative process.

If you or your child are wishing to apply for funding in the following sports please contact the sport directly.

If you or your child are wishing to apply for funding for a sport not listed above please apply through the 2019-20 IGSP Application Form.
