What is Active Kids?
Starting 31 January 2018, the NSW Government will allocate $207 million towards the Active Kids Program until 2021. Active Kids will help families meet the demanding costs of children’s sports, fitness and recreation activities, and subsequently increase the physical activity levels of children in NSW.
As of 1st July 2019, the NSW Government will allocate an extra $100 voucher per school aged child per year, to help with the increasing costs of sports and living. Ideally vouchers are to be used for summer and winter activities.
Can I use both vouchers at once?
No, the two vouchers cannot be combined to pay for one single program costing more than $100. They can be used with the same provider to help with the costs of 2 separate terms, throughout the year.
For example - $100 voucher to help with the costs of Term 1 Swimming Lessons and the 2nd $100 Voucher to help with the costs of Term 2 Swimming Lessons.

Parents can claim the 2 x $100 vouchers each year for school enrolled children aged 4.5 years to 18 years.
This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW.
Two vouchers will be available for every child in the family annually until 2021.
What can the voucher be used for?
The voucher can be used for any sporting program that lasts 8 weeks or longer, where full payment hasn’t been made as yet or if there remains an outstanding balance.
