  • Places and spaces: Everyone in NSW having access to places and spaces for sport and active recreation.
  • Sustainability: The sector continues to grow sport and active recreation across NSW.

Applications must clearly demonstrate an identified need for the project and articulate how the project outcomes will be achieved. Specifically, applications should demonstrate how the project will address at least one of the following objectives:

  • Increase regular and on-going participation in sport
  • Increase participation and access for women, girls and population groups under-represented in participation including, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, people with a disability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (ATSI)
  • Address barriers to participation in sport or structured physical activity
  • Assist sport clubs to provide quality service to their members and meet community needs.

Funding of $50,000 per electorate will be allocated to all 93 electorates throughout NSW. Funds from under-subscribed electorates will be made available to over-subscribed electorates.

Applicants may apply for one application per project type but should prioritise their projects as the maximum available to any one organisation under this round of the program is $20,000 in a financial year.
