Representative Sports Grant

The Parramatta Representative Sport Grants is a fast track category designed to:

  • Support people who are excelling at sport and representing Parramatta at a state, national or international level;
  • Reduce financial pressure on individuals and families presented by excelling in representative sport;
  • Role modelling active lifestyles and fair play to the Parramatta community;
  • Promote and develop athlete pathways;
  • Leverage off/disseminate knowledge and experience with other athletes;
  • Develop leaders to promote participation pathways in their chosen sport or recreation field.                                                                                                                                                                       


Please check that the sport you are competing with has been approved by Sport Australia before completing an application form.  If the sport is not approved by Sport Australia, your application will be ineligible.

Available funding                                                                         

$20,000 is allocated to the Representative Sports Grant. 

The Representative Sports Grant category is now a tiered funding structure, up to a maximum cap of $1,000 (ex GST) as per below, or 50% of competition costs, whichever is lesser:

i. International competition          =      $1,000
ii. National competition            =      $500
iii. State competition                =      $200

City of Parramatta Council will only fund one application over a calendar year, regardless of the number of applications received from an organisation.

Program timelines                                                                                

Applications are open all year round.

Applicants must submit an application at least four weeks before the sporting event start date. The assessment and approval process can take longer than four weeks resulting in applicants being notified of a funding decision after the event has occurred.                                                                 

Please contact the Community Grants Officer if you did not receive enough notice for the competition and are unable to apply four weeks in advance.                                     

All successful grant recipients are required to submit proof of competition attendance as part of the acquittal process. Recipients must acquit the application within four weeks of the competition. For successful applicants who are notified after their competition date, payments will be conditional on proof of competition attendance.

Failure to acquit the grant will affect any future funding requests.
