The Active Kids grant is ongoing until notified otherwise.
From 31 January 2018, parents/guardians/carers can apply for a voucher valued up to $50 per calendar year for each student enrolled in school.
The NSW Government is helping kids get active with the new Active Kids program.
The voucher can be used for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and recreational activities during the calendar year it was issued.
The initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.

- activity details, including sports or activity type, location and provider website details
- business bank account details for the account that will take reimbursements.
When you register you’ll need to create a business profile.
