(3) There is no designated ACT Government support for this very broad cohort of our community to participate in sport and recreation beyond our existing investment in sporting peak bodies, capital works and programs, all of which have potential to impact the cost of participation.
The ACT Government’s Tenant Participation Grants program aims to encourage and support participation by public housing tenants in social networks by engaging with the community through a range of activities for physical, social, and personal development. This includes sporting participation. https://www.communityservices.act.gov.au/hcs/grants

• Youth Interact Scholarships https://www.communityservices.act.gov.au/youth/grants/guidelines
• Indigenous Sport Grant Program (Commonwealth Government Funding, ACT residents can apply) https://www.wbacc.gov.au/indigenous-sports-grants/
Funding to support kids who would otherwise be unable to participate in junior sport has also previously been available through Every Chance to Play, however this program is not currently running.
