Young athletes and officials in the Mudgeeraba electorate who attend state, national and international championships are set to receive better financial assistance under a revised state government program.
The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy helped cover the transport and accommodation costs involved with attending championship events.
The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy is a new and improved version of a similar program.
Under the revised scheme, up to $1200 can be provided every two years for both young athletes and officials
There will now also be an allocation of funding to help cover the transportation and accommodation costs for each level of championship—$200 for state, $400 for national and $600 for international.
Currently, young athletes and officials are eligible to receive $200 every two years if they compete at a state, national or international championship event.
The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy would open for applications on 1 July 2015.
