Back To The Track grants open

REGIONAL racing clubs may share in $400,000 for projects to build stronger links with local communities as part of the NSW Government's new Back To The Track program.

Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said grants would help attract additional attendance at race clubs and support current and new businesses.

"Grants of up to $20,000 are available for projects such as training programs for those wanting to begin a career in the industry, hosting racing events oriented toward new markets or hold sport and community events at the track,” he said.

"We want to strengthen links between local racecourses and the communities they serve to ensure country racing continues to thrive in the regions.”

Racing Minister Paul Toole wants ideas to support and build upon current race meetings, such as markets or small concerts, and encourage more people to these events,” he said.

"By attracting people who may never have been to our local tracks before we can bring communities together and support regional racing.”

Applications for grants are open between August 1-27.
