The Australian Sports Commission is now providing Orienteering Australia with $200,000 per year in funding to increase participation, and this year also provided $80,000 in funding to build capacity to implement the Sporting Schools program for orienteering in primary schools.
A background paper on the funding criteria and request for project submissions from state associations was provided to state associations last month. This is the following: Participation Project Request Bulletin September 2015 (PDF 266kb)
This document includes a template for funding submissions. Clubs wishing to submit project proposals should do so through their state associations. These may be for 2016, for 2017 or for later years. However, preliminary bids for 2016 are required as soon as possible and no later than the end of this month.
