Get started vouchers program
Round 12 of the Queensland Government’s Get Started Vouchers program will open on 25 July 2018.
A voucher of up to $150 per calendar year is available for eligible children/young people aged 5 to 17, who hold or whose parent/carer/guardian holds, a valid Centrelink
Health Care Card or
Pensioner Concession Card. Vouchers are then presented to local
sport or active recreation clubs registered for the program to help with the costs for membership.
When a child or young person does not have access to a Centrelink Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession Card but the family is in genuine financial need, or if the family does have access to a Centrelink card but is experiencing issues that would prevent them from applying directly (e.g. computer/internet access issues, computer illiteracy or language as a barrier), a
referral agent can refer the child to the program.
Please ensure that you have created a
QGrants account beforehand or logged into your existing account, to ensure that you are ready to apply once the round opens.
Watch the short video to find out how you can apply for a Get Started Voucher, when the round is open.
