Public views sought on Sports Subvention Scheme review
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) is now conducting a comprehensive review of the Sports Subvention Scheme (SSS), with a view to optimising the scheme and further enhancing the development of sport in Hong Kong. Members of the public are welcome to express their views until February 28.
     The SSS review includes: (a) funding principles and eligibility for national sports associations (NSAs) and other sports organisations (SOs); (b) allocation of subvention and subsidy level; (c) means to attract and retain talents to stay and continue to contribute to the sporting arena; and (d) measures to enhance monitoring and corporate governance.
     Members of the public are welcome to express their views during the consultation period by email (reviewsss@lcsd.gov.hk), by fax (2681 2099) or by post to Sports Funding Office of the LCSD at 2/F, LCS Headquarters, 1-3 Pai Tau Street, Sha Tin (please quote Comprehensive Review of Sports Subvention Scheme on the envelope).
     The LCSD is also gauging views from all subvented NSAs/SOs, and has commissioned a consultant to study matters including the principles, modes and mechanisms of subvention to sports organisations in overseas countries. It is expected that the review will be completed by 2019-20. More details are available on the LCSD website www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/programmes/programmeslist/sss/review.html.
