Para-sport Equipment Fund

The Para-sport Equipment fund is a joint initiative of Paralympics Australia and Sport Australia, supported by Paralympics Australia’s sponsors and donors.

It 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.

Round 6 of the Para-sport Equipment Fund is now closed.

All Round 6 applicants will be notified of the outcome of your application prior to Friday 9 April 2021.

Subject to availability of funding for the program, Paralympics Australia will determine if an additional round of applications will be accepted. Please check this page for updates in the coming weeks.
