- 30 Western Australian sporting clubs awarded funding through Healthway's Winter Healthy Sporting Club Grants
- Grants support WA clubs to purchase equipment and with training towards healthy canteens and providing healthy food options
Through Healthway's 2021 Winter Healthy Sporting Club Program, the McGowan Government has awarded more than $100,000 to 30 Western Australian sports clubs to support their efforts to build healthy sporting club environments.
The program provides up to $4,000 in grants to sporting clubs over the 2021 season. The funding enables clubs to increase their healthy food and drink choices at club-run canteens, kiosks or food services, as well as improve awareness of the importance of good nutrition, particularly for young people.
The initiative sees Healthway partner with the Western Australian School Canteen Association to provide support in education and key resources.
Since the program started in 2019 there have been 205 Healthy Sporting Club Grants awarded, providing $679,862 in grants to metropolitan and regional clubs across Western Australia.
Applications for the 2021 Summer Healthy Sporting Club program will open in August. For more information, visit http://www.healthway.wa.gov.au
