Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program

Grants - Open grants, NSW Grants

Applications close 5:00 PM 12 April 2021 (AEST) with a maximum of $1,900 available per application.

Grant Overview:

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program allocates $4 million over four years, in order to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).

An AED is a life-saving device that delivers a controlled shock to an individual experiencing cardiac arrest, increasing their chances of survival.

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program provides NSW sports clubs and councils the opportunity to acquire an AED package for their club or sports facility at a reduced cost.

Sporting organisations and councils will be able to choose from a panel of approved AED providers and a variety of AED packaged services with the level of customer service that meets their needs.

An AED package will include:

  • An AED
  • AED familiarisation instruction (within 28 days of delivery)
  • A minimum of six years of essential AED maintenance

AED Panel Service Providers, AED products and services are required to meet and maintain minimum requirements under the panel contract with the Office of Sport.

Sporting organisations and councils must rely on their own enquiries to the suitability of the AED Panel Service Provider they engage.

Funding available

Grants are available up to 50 per cent of the AED package in Zones 1 and 2 and up to 75 per cent in Zone 3.

Applicants can request more than one AED.

Applicants will need to contribute to the purchase price and accept any further operating expenses from their own budget.

Grants are available up to 50% of the selected AED package price in Zones 1 and 2 and up to 75% in Zone 3.

Funding should be expended within six months of the date of signing the funding agreement.

Applications for this grant will close on the 12th of April, 2021.
