The North West Travel Subsidy (NWTS) aims to encourage participation in identified sport and active recreation activities for athletes living in the regions of the Kimberley, Pilbara and Gascoyne and other remote locations within the Mid West and Goldfields regions.
The scheme offers financial assistance to not-for-profit sport and active recreation organisations to help offset the costs of travel to inter-regional competitions and events.
Applicants must comply with all requirements as listed above to be eligible for assistance.
*In certain circumstances, the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) may consider athletes outside of this age-band on a case-by-case basis.
Funding is available based on two support schemes:

Where athletes who meet the eligibility criteria are travelling to an event or championship in Perth, the following individual funding support will be provided:
If four or more athletes who meet the eligibility criteria are travelling to the same event or championship in Perth, the following team funding support will be provided:

Applications are open all year.
An assessment will be made to determine if the application is eligible by assessing it against the grant criteria. If approved, a grant agreement will be entered into which outlines the grant conditions and acquittal requirements. Once signed and returned,
the grant will be paid directly to the applicant body (organisation or association). No grant monies will be paid directly to an individual. The applicant body will be responsible for the acquittal of the grant and will be responsible to forward any
approved funding to individuals as deemed necessary.
At the completion of the project, the applicant body will need to complete the acquittal documentation, acquittal statement and key results schedule, within 30 days and forward to DLGSC to demonstrate that the funds have been spent in accordance with
the outlined grant agreement. Failure to comply with these requirements may jeopardise future funding from DLGSC.
