Rural Travel Fund Application
Background
The Rural Travel Fund was developed in response to concerns raised by territorial
authorities about the lack of participation in sport by young people living in rural
communities. Geographical isolation, urban drift, lack of employment opportunities
and access to mainstream funding were identied as barriers to sport participation.
The Rural Travel Fund is designed to help subsidise travel for junior teams
participating in local sporting competitions. The allocation of the fund is based on a
population density formula for territorial authorities whom have less than 10 people
per square kilometre based on 20c per capita (Source : Census Statistics 2001).
Rural Travel Fund Eligibility
Application for the Rural Travel Fund is open to rural sports clubs and rural school
teams with young people aged between 5 and 19 years who require subsidies to
assist with transport expenses to local sporting competitions.
The Rural Travel Fund is managed by the territorial authority and funding should not
be provided for the purpose of travel to regional or national events.
Assessment Criteria
The following criteria shall be applied when considering applications for funding:
School club teams and sport club teams are dened as:
a school club team participating in local sport competition in weekends, that
excludes inter-school and intra-school competitions played during school time
and/or
a sports club team participating in organised sport competition through club
membership outside of school time.
