The KidSport program provides eligible children with grants of up to $150 per year to help pay club fees, easing the burden the rising costs of junior sport places on families.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray today announced the fund had hit the $27 million milestone — noting the particular benefits it had provided to regional WA, where it has delivered $10 million to eligible children, all the way from Albany to Karratha.

Since the program started in in 2011, KidSport has distributed more than 176,000 vouchers to more than 82,000 children. Of those children, some 55,500 had never joined a club before.

The cities of Wanneroo and Cockburn have both been big supporters of the program, helping to deliver $2.5 million and $1 million of vouchers respectively to children in their localities.

KidSport is run by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, with the help of 131 local governments.

Applications are open all year round.
