Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program (SRDRP)
- The Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program is now closed.
- The program has funding available for eligible sport and active recreation organisations located in areas declared under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
Please contact your local Sport and Recreation office if you have any questions.
When activated, the Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program supports not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations with funding to re-establish their facilities and activities after extreme natural events, including floods, fire, cyclones and severe storms.
Funding of up to $5000 may be available for eligible sport and active recreation organisations located in areas declared under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
If an event is not listed on this webpage under “Funding locations”, visit the Queensland Reconstruction Authority's Activations webpage for the most current information on activations.
Where the organisation’s LGA is listed under categories for “Personal Hardship Assistance” or “Reconstruction of Essential Public Assets”, funding will be available for application up to 3 months from the latest activation date of the event. If an LGA is activated under more than one event, seek advice from your local Sport and Recreation office.
There are currently no funding locations with open activations.
