More vouchers to help pay for sporting equipment, uniforms and memberships are on offer for young Victorians to lap up more activity this summer as restrictions continue to ease.
Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence announced that applications for the third round of the $21 million Get Active Kids Voucher Program opened on Monday 4 October.
For the first time kids under four will be eligible, as well as recipients in previous rounds, meaning young Victorians can continue playing sports throughout the year or switch to seasonal sports.
To be eligible, kids need to be aged 0 to 18, a Victorian resident, named on a valid Commonwealth Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and named on a valid Medicare Card at the time of application.
The program also provides a special consideration stream to support temporary or provisional visa holders, undocumented migrants and international students aged up to 18 years at the time of application.
Eligible expenditure dates (for membership, uniform and equipment costs) in round three are from 1 January 2021 – 30 November 2021.
Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday 30 November 2021. To apply or for more information, click here.
