Nearly 50 local sporting organisations have been awarded grant funding through the state governments Active Club Reboot Round.

Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said the grants would help support those in the Riverland sporting industry who are doing it tough.

Mr Whetstone added “Just over $80,000 has been allocated to 48 eligible clubs in the Riverland and will go towards helping to adapt to changes brought on by COVID-19.”

The funding may be used for digital equipment to hold remote meetings, hand sanitiser and cleaning products, or to purchase equipment, uniforms and training aids.
