New rounds of sporting infrastructure funding programs opened on 14 November, including the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program, the Grassroots Facilities Program and the Regional and Districts Facilities Program.
All sporting organisations and clubs interested in applying for funds for an Infrastructure Project are encouraged to read the guidelines or contact Funding Services on 1300 714 990 for assistance.
The programs are:
Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program (CRSFP)
The objective of CRSFP is to provide access to funding for the development of sustainable, functional, inclusive and fit-for-purpose active recreation and sport facilities that meet the current and future needs of the South Australian community. CRSFP will assist eligible organisations to develop infrastructure that directly addresses demonstrated need and supports participation through the rational development of good quality projects.
Grassroots Facilities Program (GFP)
The objective of GFP is to increase sport participation and improve gender equality to support healthier, happier and safer communities. GFP will assist eligible organisations to develop core infrastructure that directly impacts participation through the rational development of good quality, well designed and utilised facilities.
Regional and Districts Facilities Program (RDFP)
The objective of RDFP is to create regionally significant sport and active recreation precincts (sport and active recreation hubs) that meet the current and future needs of the South Australian community. RDFP will assist eligible organisations to develop infrastructure that is strategically justified through the rational development of good quality projects.
Applications for all programs close 17 January 2021, midday.
