The Nationals Member for Northern Victoria Gaelle Broad has encouraged local families and
sporting organisations to make the most of the latest round of the Get Active Kids Voucher
Under this program, eligible families can apply for vouchers of up to $200 per child to cover
registration costs and membership fees across a variety of sports and activities.
“This program helps support children and families with the cost of participating and playing
local sport,” Ms Broad said.
“This program can help remove some of the barriers preventing our children from playing
sport or exercising. The more accessible we can make these activities, the better,” Ms Broad
“My kids have always been involved in a range of community sports, and I understand the
financial pressure on families as costs quickly add up.
“Community sports are a great way for families to connect and encourage our kids to be
healthy and active.
“By getting involved they also learn valuable life lessons like how to be part of a team and to
always do your best regardless of the results.
“Each voucher can be used to pay for memberships, registration fees, uniforms, and
equipment across a wide range of sporting codes and recreation activities.”
For voucher recipients to be eligible, they must be aged 18 and under, a Victorian resident,
named on a valid Commonwealth Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and
named on a valid Medicare Card at the time of application.
Applications will close once the allocation has been exhausted. Vouchers can be used up to
April 30, 2024.
