What is the Para-sport Equipment Fund

The Para-sport Equipment fund is designed to provide opportunities for Australians with disabilities to participate and compete in Para-sport by addressing some of the most significant challenges faced by Para-athletes and programs; the costs associated with obtaining Para-sport equipment, which in many cases must be customised for the participant.

Delivered in collaboration with Paralympics Australia’s key stakeholders, the fund aims to offer a range of equipment access solutions for Para-athletes and participation programs to enable more people with a disability to participate in Para-sport.

The primary focus of the program is to support individuals and programs at the entry participation level, however Para-athletes and programs with a focus of higher levels within the pathway may also be considered.

Please read the Para-sport Equipment Fund Guidelines (PDF – 91KB) prior to submitting your application.
