The 4th round of the Get Active Kids Voucher program is soon upon us and we encourage you to make the most of the program if your family is eligible.
The Get Active Kids Voucher program helps eligible families get their kids involved in organised sport and active recreation activities. Eligible children may receive up to $200 to cover the costs for membership and registration fees, equipment, and uniforms/clothing.
To be eligible your child must be:
- Ages 0 to 18 years,
- A resident in Victoria,
- Named on a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and Medicare Card.
The Program has two options for eligible families and activities:
This voucher allows parents to get reimbursed. If you have paid for your child’s registration fees or membership, you can apply to be reimbursed for up to $200. You can be reimbursed for expenses incurred between 1 January 2021 and 18 March 2022. Applications for reimbursement open at 10 am Monday 7 March and close at 5 pm Friday 18 March.
- Application for vouchers
This allows parents to receive a voucher of up to $200 that is redeemable with a registered activity provider. When you register or pay for your child’s membership, you will provide us with a voucher code, and we will reduce the cost of the registration and/or membership fee up to the value of $200. Applications for vouchers will open on 21 March and close 31 May. Vouchers are redeemable until 14 June.
