Ms Kate Ellis (Minister for Youth and Minister for Sport) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

(1)   We worked closely with local communities, councils and grass roots sporting groups to identify and select projects that help promote healthy lifestyles and physical activity. The Government allocated funding for all of these projects in the 08/09 Budget. All parties and organisations have been notified of funding and the Department is negotiating funding agreements in line with due process. In cases where Government funding forms part of a co-funding arrangement, the details are being worked out with the relevant parties through the negotiation of the funding agreements.
