Regional Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme
The Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme provides funding assistance to regional Western Australian athletes who aspire to reach their full sporting potential.
The Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme (ATSS) is an initiative supporting regional athletes who have progressed into the high performance pathway of their chosen sport and are pursuing regional, state and national representation.
Eligible athletes can receive funding for out-of-pocket travel and accommodation expenses directly related to competitions and programs in accordance with the performance level categories and eligibility criteria outlined in the application guidelines.
Subsidies for regional athletes are provided through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.
Previously the Department has supported a travel subsidy for both regional and metropolitan athletes. Due to a prioritization of available funds and the conclusion of the subsidy in its current form, the Scheme will now only support athletes that reside outside of the metropolitan area.
