Sport in Western Australia is set to benefit from an increased funding allocation to make facilities accessible to women in the latest round of the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) program.
- Applications now open for McGowan Government's $12 million grassroots sporting infrastructure program
- More funding set aside for change rooms and facilities to support women's sport
- Small grants maximum project cost increased, cutting red tape and paperwork for applicants
The CSRFF provides $12 million a year to community groups and local governments to develop infrastructure for sport and recreation. The last round of the program allocated more than $3 million to projects which provide change rooms and facilities for women.
Applications for the latest round of funding are now open, with changes to the program for 2020-21 including:
- An increase in base funding set aside for women's facilities, to $500,000; and
- A 50 per cent increase in the maximum project cost for small grants, from $200,000 to $300,000, reducing red tape and paperwork for applicants.
The CSRFF aims to increase participation in sport and recreation by helping build well-designed and well-utilised facilities for grassroots sporting organisations around the State.
