ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHER
The NSW government has allocated $207 million over four years to establish the Active Kids Rebate program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and fitness activities.
The NSW Government is helping kids get active with the new Active Kids program.
The Active Kids program provides two $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.
From 1 July 2019, parents, guardians and carers can apply for the second $100 Active Kids voucher. Voucher 1 is valid January to December and Voucher 2 is valid July to December.
The vouchers may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities.
What is the Active Kids Voucher Program?
The voucher can be redeemed towards payment of memberships or fees with an approved provider registered with the Active Kids Voucher program, each calendar year.
Who is eligible for a voucher?
Every child enrolled in school from Kindergarten to year 12 will be eligible for the Active Kids Voucher.
How do participants access the voucher?
From 1 January, 2019, a parent or guardian can apply online at the Service NSW Website.
Once the required information is completed an alpha-numeric voucher code will be provided that can then be used during the Footyweb registration process. The voucher can only be redeemed for one sport per calendar year.
When can families start downloading and using their vouchers?
From 1 January, 2019, families will be able to apply for their voucher(s) online from the MyServiceNSW portal. Vouchers are valid for redemption during the current calendar year and will expire at the end of the calendar year. Vouchers cannot be used retrospectively.
