Building better facilities and communities

Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund approvals 2013/14 

Each year, community groups and local government authorities across the State receive financial assistance to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation.

This is achieved through a $20 million a year State Government Treasury Trust Fund administered by our Department called the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).

The provision of well-planned capital works for facilities leads to an increase in physical activity levels and as we all know, participation in physical activity, especially in a club environment, makes individuals healthier, happier and their communities stronger and safer places to live. Communities are ultimately the beneficiaries of these projects.

Priority is given to projects that lead to facility sharing and rationalisation.

Multi-purpose facilities reduce the amount of infrastructure required to meet similar needs and increase sustainability.

The grants are allocated over a triennium of financial years.

In 2013/14, funds were allocated for 2014/15 through to 2016/17. Grants are categorised into Small, Annual or Forward Planning Grants. Small grants are offered twice a year and allocated to projects valued between $7,500 and $150,000.

Annual grants are allocated to projects with an estimated value of between $150,001 and $500,000. Grants in this category must be claimed in the 2014/15 financial year.

Forward-planning grants are allocated to more complex projects requiring extensive planning, with a total value in excess of $500,000. These projects may be allocated funds in 2014/15, 2015/16 or 2016/17.

Through the CSRFF $19,138,198 in grants were allocated to 102 facilities projects State-wide.
