Get Active Small Grant Program 2022-25

Funding is available for statewide delivery of the Get Active Programs (GAP) to increase the engagement of people in physical activity, especially those living in disadvantaged areas in Tasmania.

The GAP is under licence to Womensport and Recreation Tasmania Inc. It is a flexible 10-week program that includes workshops and learning activities as well fun recreational activities in local communities.

A number of small grants are available to enable organisations to implement a GAP using a facilitator who has completed GAP training. Grant releases are advertised in the first week of January, May, and August. To add your name to the distribution email please contact the Program Manager at

Please find a link to the Get Active Program page here.

To find out about facilitator training workshops click here.

Funding is provided for the running of a GAP at a local level, as well as to support the running costs of activities included in the program. 


Funding can also be used to offset costs such as the required GAP facilitator training, advertising and promotion, resource development (e.g. printing, photocopying), telephone calls, supplementing costs of some activities, or to engage instructors and leaders for physical activities.


The funding can be used towards the cost of an externally contracted instructor or facilitator, but not for the purpose of paying the salary of an employee of your organisation.

The maximum that can be applied for is $800

Facilitators need to have completed GAP facilitator training. Information on our workshop can be found here
