-UPDATE- NEIGHBORHOOD CLUBS AND COMMUNITY SPORTS ENTITIES:
SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE
The National Ministry of Tourism and Sports, by Resolution 252/2020, proceeded to create the Support Program for the Improvement of the Infrastructure of Neighbourhood Clubs and Community Sports Entities. The purpose of the Program is to grant infrastructure financing of those entities.
To be eligible, Clubs must meet the requirements set forth in Article 5 of Law 27,098; namely:
a) Possess legal status and domicile in the Argentine Republic;
b) Have been established before three years; and
c) Have a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 2,000 members at the time of registration.
Destinations for subsidies are the following:
• Construction of outdoor sports spaces;
• Dressing rooms;
• Access facilities:
• Electric system improvements;
• Deck improvements;
• General painting; and
• Other unspecified purposes.
Funds for selected projects will be routed through the “Clubs under Construction” card to be issued by Banco Nación Argentina when purchase of materials is required, and through Bank transfers when labour or other related expenses are required.
Applications for financial aid must be submitted to the Undersecretary for Sports Infrastructure and National Competitions, in accordance with the corresponding instructions. No funds will be awarded or new aid will be awarded to those beneficiaries who have previously received funds with expired due dates.
Moreover, authorities made available the documentation to be filled out to those interested (the Club's identification requirements are simpler for those already registered at the National Registry of Neighbourhood and Town Clubs). This documentation includes on-line registration forms (with description of work, starting and finish dates, budget for material and labour expenses forms, Request Note and the "Clubs under Construction" card request form.
