Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) small grants round is now open

Published: Wednesday, 3 July 2019 at 12:06:39 PM

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries has grant opportunities available from the Sport and Recreation arm of the department.

The current small grants round of CSRFF opened on Monday, 1 July with applications due by 4.00pm on Friday, 30 August. Below is the link to information for applicants.

You must contact our DLGSC Midwest Sport and Rec officers (Richard Malacari, or Simon Barras) to discuss your application prior to submitting it.

Also, if you have project ideas for Shire owned sport and rec facilities, please contact Solataire Cameron and we can discuss the possibility of an application.

Small grants will be awarded to projects involving a basic level of planning. The total project cost for small grants must not exceed $300,000.

Some of the priority considerations for CSRFF include:

  • Projects that will directly lead to an increase in physical activity or participation.
  • Projects that lead to facility sharing between clubs, or rationalization of existing facilities to increase sustainability.
  • Projects to upgrade facilities to make them more accessible for female participants (e.g. changerooms with lockable showers and no urinals).
  • Projects in a location with a significant Aboriginal population that will increase participation or physical activity.

The type of projects which will be considered for funding include:

  • New playing surfaces — ovals, courts, synthetic surfaces etc.
  • Floodlighting projects (must be to Australian Standards)
  • Change rooms and ablutions
  • Sports storage
