Round two of Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme now open

Young athletes are a step closer to their sporting dreams with the opening of the latest round of the Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme.
Eligible athletes can receive funding for out-of-pocket travel and accommodation expenses directly related to competitions and programs in accordance with the performance level categories and eligibility criteria outlined in the application guidelines.
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said many young athletes were excluded from State and national representation at sporting events due to ongoing travel requirements and associated costs.
 
“Through this scheme, Royalties for Regions is improving opportunities for talented young people to reach their sporting dreams, even while living in regional Western Australia,” Mr Redman said.
 
Metropolitan athletes have been allocated $1million and in regional Western Australia, a total of $1.75 million over four years has been allocated through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program.
 
Closing date is 23 January 2015.
