OA Participation Funding Distribution Program Opens Today!

Applications for the OA Participation Funding Distribution Program 2024-25 open today at 09:00am! Funding can be applied for by State/Territory Orienteering Organisations and their member clubs, to improve orienteering participation outcomes.

The funding distribution program aims to help Orienteering Australia achieve its ambition from the 2022-25 strategic plan “to be an attractive and inspirational sport of choice for participants of all ages and aspirations”. The program aligns with the strategic priorities of Great Events, Great Relationships and most importantly, Great Opportunities. The program will contribute to realising the outcomes of the whole of sport Orienteering Participation Plan 2024-25.

There is a total of $20000 available in the funding distribution program. The maximum that can be applied for by each application is up to $3000, however pending the number and quality of applications, the amount received may be less than that applied for. Note that any amount up to $3000 can be applied for (i.e. a small application of $500-1000 can be made). State organisations/clubs can make multiple applications if they have several participation projects in mind.

More information about the funding distribution program can be found in the guidelines document. The final draft version of the Orienteering Participation Plan, which is just waiting final graphic design, can be found here.

Applications can be made using the form found here. A PDF version of these questions can be found here.

Applications close on Friday April 19th at 5:00pm. If you have any questions about the funding distribution program, please contact the OA Participation Manager, Brodie Nankervis, at participation@orienteering.asn.au
