REGIONAL SPORT FACILITY FUND ROUND 2 OPENS
The sports infrastructure investment boom is continuing following the opening of Round 2 of the Regional Sport Facility Fund.
The Fund provides grants for new and upgraded sports facilities in regional NSW, Lord Howe Island and Far West NSW.
Member for Albury Justin Clancy said the Fund was improving sport infrastructure for regional communities.
“The health and wellbeing benefits of sport and active recreation can’t be underestimated,” Mr Clancy said.
“The Regional Sport Facility Fund is improving local sports facilities and active recreational spaces, and enabling more people to participate in sport and active recreation.
“I encourage local organisations to apply for a grant under the Fund.”
The Regional Sport Facility Fund provides grants of $100,000 - $1 million for projects such as amenity buildings, lighting, clubrooms, change rooms and grandstands.
Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the Fund is stimulating local economies, boosting employment and promoting healthy lifestyles across NSW.
“Investing in new and existing sports facilities is vital for NSW residents,” Mrs Ward said.
“Inclusive projects that encourage the participation of females and people with disability are a priority of the Fund.
“The Fund is creating a sports infrastructure construction boom across the State as part of the Government’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure pipeline.”
Applications open 30 August 2021 and close 8 October 2021 at noon.
