The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing have launched their new Infrastructure Projects grants.

Your club is eligible to apply for funding under the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program (CRSFP), Grassroots Facilities Program (GFP), and Regional and Districts Facilities Program (RDFP) programs.

To support the implementation of the State Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Plan the government has committed $35 million towards the establishment of the $10 million RDFP and the $25 million GFP. These budgets have been split over 2020-21 and 2021-22, resulting in $44 million being available in infrastructure grants over the 2020-21 and 2021-22 financial years.

This new funding combined with existing program budgets will result in $20,670,000 being available across the Infrastructure Projects suite of grant programs in 2021-22.
