Sport & Recreation Funding Opportunities

14 August 2015

State Member for Morayfield, Mark Ryan MP, was joined by Pumicestone MP, Rick Williams, in hosting a successful Sports & Recreation Funding Information Forum in Morayfield on Monday 10 August 2015.


Mr Ryan said that there was a good turnout of interested sporting and recreation groups from the local area who were interested in learning more about the State Government's sport and recreation funding opportunities.


A number of factsheets on the various funding opportunities were provided at the Forum and links to these documents are set out below.


Mr Ryan said that he is keen to assist local sporting groups with any applications that they may wish to make in respect of these funding opportunities, or any other funding opportunity they wish to pursue.
