Sport and Recreation Grants

Individual Athlete Grants

AlburyCity recognises the significant cost - both time and financial - faced by athletes and their families when they are selected to participate in their chosen sport at a high level.

The Individual Athlete Grants program provides small amounts of funding assistance to Albury residents to assist in the pursuit of their chosen sporting field at a high level of achievement. This amounts to individuals participating in events where they are representing their state or nation in a national or international sporting competition.

This program is open to receive applications year-round.

The 2017/18 grant program can be found here: https://alburycity.smartygrants.com.au
