Earlier this week the NSW government provided some more details about its Active Kids program which was first announced in the last state budget.
From January 2018 and for the next 4 years, NSW families will be entitled to $100 for each school child who participates in a recognised sporting activity. The $100 will be paid in the form of a voucher that can be used to pay sport fees. It cannot be used to purchase sporting equipment. The sporting organisation must be registered with the Active Kids program to be able to accept the vouchers.
The program will not be means tested.
Further details on the program are available at sport.nsw.gov.au/activekids
You will be able apply for the vouchers at service.nsw.gov.au through a MyServiceNSW account. If you don’t have one of these you will need to set one up.
No further details are available at this point, but when they become available we’ll let MoneyBrilliant users who may be eligible know exactly what they need to get their vouchers and claim their benefit. It’s all part of the MoneyBrilliant service.
