Get Started is one of three funding programs that comprise the Queensland Government's Get in the Game initiative to support grassroots sport and recreation.
Get Started assists children and young people who can least afford or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club.
Eligible children and young people can apply online for a voucher valued up to $150, which can be presented at a Get Started sport or recreation club.
More information can be found at the Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing’s Get in the Game website. Funding will open early in the new year, and a second round of offers mid year (15th July 2015).
If a child is eligible for Get Started, they are not guaranteed a voucher. The funding will be distributed in two rounds each year on a first come, first served basis. Once the allocation for each round is exhausted, the program will close and no further vouchers will be offered for that round.
