The Tasmanian Government continues through our Service Agreement to provide financial support for SLST and Volunteer Marine Rescue groups to subsidise the costs of providing a volunteer education, rescue and lifesaving service to the Tasmanian community across the state. This assistance offsets costs for providing free surf lifesaving services on Tasmanian beaches and for recreational boaters, lifesaving skill development programs for our members, community programs and our public liability insurance.
In 2020 the Tasmanian Government has provided additional support to SLST through Tranche 1 of the COVID-19 Sport and Recreation Grants Program. Funding provided through Tranche 1 of the COVID-19 Sport and Recreation Grants program is specifically to assist with salary costs for six months for employees. This funding will enable SLST to continue to support our clubs and members in the transition back to club activities for the 2020-21 season.
