The NSW Government’s popular Active Kids program will be doubled in 2019, with two $100 vouchers available in one calendar year.
This year, a second $100 Active Kids voucher will be available for the six month period from July 1 to December 31.
From 2020, two $100 Active Kids vouchers will be available from Service NSW for the entire calendar year.
Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the doubling was a result of the government’s strong budget.
“The NSW Liberal Government is helping families with the cost of living, while also encouraging children to play more sport all year round through the Active Kids program.
“Families on the Central Coast have embraced Active Kids since it was launched in January, 2018, with 19,118 vouchers issued in the electorates of Terrigal, The Entrance and Gosford,” Crouch said.
Liberal candidate for Gosford, Sue Dengate, said the vouchers were a boon to the community.
“More than 60 per cent of children in the Gosford electorate are benefitting from Active Kids vouchers, meaning our local area has one of the highest uptakes in NSW.
“The doubling of the Active Kids program builds on more than 40 cost of living initiatives from the NSW Liberal Government, including the Creative Kids voucher, energy rebates for seniors and low-income households, CTP Green Slip rebates and more.
