The Innovation Challenge Program awards grants for new and clever ideas, including those that enhance existing processes or programs that respond to community need.

The program encourages physical activity opportunities for disengaged target groups, especially women and girls.

Some of the awarded projects include a Dads and Daughters cricket program, a nature-based walk 'n' talk app that targets girls aged 11-17 years, and a tracking app for swimming groups.

Local governments, sporting and community organisations could request funding of up to $50,000 for the development of a concept, and up to $150,000 for the delivery of a program over a 12-month period.

The Innovation Challenge Program is administered and co-funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, in partnership with Healthway.
