Rural travel fund

The Rural Travel Fund was developed in response to concerns about a potential lack of participation in sport by young people living in rural communities. The fund:

  • is designed to help subsidise rural travel for junior teams, and
  • is targeted at young people aged between 5-19 years to assist school and club sports teams to participate in local sporting competitions.
