The scheme is being administered in collaboration with the Minister for Finance Prof. Edward Scicluna.

Parliamentary Secretary Buontempo said that this scheme addresses the need for a healthier and physically active society. Applicable to everyone, the sport equipment scheme is a way of reaching out to communities, by enticing individuals, to do physical exercise at home.

The Finance Minister, in a message, emphasised on Malta’s need for a healthier society which will result in financial gains by reducing the expenditure bill of the health sector.

Applicants can benefit from a 15.25% grant, up to a maximum of €100 per person. The scheme will be valid till 31st December 2013 or up to the 1,000th application submitted.
