Get Out, Get Active - getting women and girls active for life

Round 3 has now closed.

What is Get Out, Get Active?

The Get Out, Get Active program provides funding for projects that will deliver community-based sport and recreation activities that increase opportunities for participation by women and girls who are either currently inactive, or would otherwise benefit from further participation.

Previously, Get Out, Get Active funding has been provided to councils to improve women’s and girls’ sport and active recreation opportunities. In partnership with the Office of the Commonwealth Games, Round 3 has been expanded to include a new category of not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations. This has been made available through the Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
