Sport and Recreation Community Grants
The NSW Government’s new ClubGRANTS program is offering grants between $500,000 and $1 million for local community groups, sports clubs and councils across the state to help them deliver or upgrade sports infrastructure.
The grants being made available under the program will be dedicated to projects which provide modern and safe community facilities for locals to partake in sport, recreational activities and improve their fitness and overall well-being.
NSW Nationals Leader Troy Grant emphasised the importance of sport and recreation centres as an integral place for community members to come together and that the State Government is proud to be able to help improve facilities which so many rely upon.
“Sport and recreation is part of our state’s social fabric and the NSW Government is committed to investing in facilities for our communities to enjoy for generations to come,” Mr Grant said.
Over the current term of government, around $50 million in ClubGRANTS will be given across NSW to support three categories of infrastructure: sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency relief facilities. Local Nats MPs are encouraging community groups, sports clubs and councils to apply for the grants.
More information on how you can apply is available on the Liquor & Gaming NSW website. Expressions of interest close on 16 September 2016.
Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS fund committee and approved applicants will then be invited to lodge formal applications. The successful projects will be announced in 2017.
