Applying for a FairPlay voucher
Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child, which can be used towards membership, registration or participation fees with registered activity providers.
There is a limit of 1 voucher per child per calendar year.
FairPlay vouchers replaces the Get Started Vouchers program. If your child received a Get Started voucher in January 2019, you cannot apply for a FairPlay voucher until January 2020.
31 July 2019 – Round 1 now open
9 October 2019 – Round 1 closes, unless all vouchers have already been issued
13 November 2019 – Vouchers expire and must have been presented to an activity provider
1. Check if your child is eligible
You can apply if your child:
- is a Queensland resident aged from 5 to 17 years (inclusive)
- did not receive a Get Started voucher this year
If you don’t meet the eligibility criteria
As part of a limited trial, certain families may be able to submit an expression of interest (EOI) for a FairPlay voucher. Check if you meet the EOI requirements.
2. Make sure your activity is available
Search the activity provider directory to check that:
- your chosen activity is listed
- there is a registered provider near you.
3. Read the terms and conditions
Read and understand the FairPlay voucher application terms and conditions.
4. Access the QGrants online system
You will need a QGrants account to apply – register for an account if you don’t have one.
If you have previously applied for a Get Started voucher, you can use the same QGrants account.
If you are successful
If your application is successful, your voucher will appear on the screen and a copy will be sent to your registered email address (you may need to check your junk mail).
