The Coles Little Athletics Community Fund (CLACF) is a grant scheme designed to distribute money to Little Athletics centres to improve the grassroots Little Athletics experience for volunteers, participants and families by supporting the purchase of sports and safety equipment.
The CLACF will be funded with ten percent (10%) of the retail sale price from every specially-marked Coles’ community bag with a LAA swing tag sold at Coles’ supermarkets between 5 June 2018 and 31 March 2019.
To be eligible to apply to the CLACF, an applicant must:
The maximum allocation per application is $5,000 and the minimum allocation per application is $1,000.
For each round of the CLACF, eligible centres can apply for ONE grant. If a centre applies for multiple grants in a round only the first application received will be reviewed.
Both successful and unsuccessful applicants are eligible to re-apply in future rounds. Unsuccessful applicants can re-submit their prior application or prepare a new application.

Application forms for the CLACF are available at coles.com.au/littleathleticsfund. Application forms need to be emailed to email@example.com

This will vary depending on the quality and quantity of applications as well as the total funds raised through the sale of specially marked Coles Community Bags in a particular period.
Applications will be reviewed by the Panel after the close of applications, with a decision on the successful applicants to be made within 30 days. Specific notification dates will be shared on coles.com.au/littleathleticsfund for each round.
