     The One-off Grant to Registered Sports Coaches scheme under the Anti-epidemic Fund is currently open for applications, with subsidies now being disbursed.
     Under the scheme, each eligible registered sports coach can receive a one-off grant of $7,500. The scheme started to receive applications on May 15 and the application deadline is June 15. As at June 3, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has received about 6 550 applications, of which about 1 600 have been approved. Grants to date have totalled about $12 million. The LCSD will usually complete the vetting process in three weeks upon receipt of the completely-filled application form, and will notify the applicants of the results via SMS or by post.
     Sports coaches registered under National Sports Associations or recognised sports organisations, who had provided coaching services from April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020, are eligible for application.
