Announced during the historic co-hosting of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™, the program will support local governments and community, not-for-profit and sporting organisations to deliver projects that make sport more welcoming and equitable for women and girls.

The grants will be available in 2 streams:

  • Facilities: For projects that establish and improve sporting facilities for women and girls and further encourage them to take part in sport and physical activity by better meeting their needs.
  • Participation and equipment: For programs that encourage women and girls to participate and remain involved in sport and physical activity for life, by tackling barriers such as disadvantage or lack of equipment, and for programs that will lead to sustained cultural change in sport.

Play Our Way grant applications will be assessed through an impartial, transparent process led by the Department of Health and Aged Care.

Applications for the Program will close 2pm, 29 April 2024.
