The Northern Territory Government Sport Voucher Scheme is helping families cover the cost of their children getting involved in sport, recreation and cultural activities.
SPORT VOUCHER REQUESTS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR THIS SEMESTER
The current 2014/15 Sport Vouchers and Learn to Swim Vouchers expires on 31 May 2015, therefore the Department will no longer be processing any new requests for Sport Vouchers until 1 July 2015.
The 2015/16 round of $100 Sport Vouchers will be distributed to schools in early July.
If you have a question or require clarification about an existing request, please call the Sport Voucher Hotline on 1800 817 860.
When will the next round of $100 Sport Vouchers be issued?
Every enrolled, school-aged child living in an urban area across the Northern Territory will have a $100 Sport Voucher automatically issued to them via their school in July.
The Schools kindly assist in distributing Sport Vouchers to parents and carers.
If you do not receive a Sport Voucher in July, please contact your school in the first instance and if a Sport Voucher has not been allocated please apply online.
The Sport Voucher issued in July 2015 will expire next year on 31 May 2016.

Where can I use my Sport Voucher?
The new $200 Sport Voucher Scheme commenced on 1 July 2014 and has been expanded to include recreation and cultural activities.
My child attends a Remote school - will they receive a Sport Voucher?
All Territory school-aged children have access to the $200 annual Sport Voucher Scheme through their School. The School in consultation with the School Council will organise sport, recreation and cultural activities.
Children attending remotes schools, therefore do not receive a printed voucher.
Examples of recent programs funded by Sport Vouchers in remote areas include cricket, basketball, hip hop, circus skills, gymnastics, music, skateboarding, Indigenous culture workshops and camps, swimming, equestrian, bicycle safety and skills, canoeing, tennis, holistic physical mobility, visual arts and drumming lessons.
