Grants - Open grants, WA Grants

The Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) exemplifies the Western Australian Government’s commitment to the development of sustainable infrastructure for sport and recreation across the State.

The program aims to increase participation in sport and recreation, with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of sustainable, good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.

Through CSRFF, the State Government will invest annually in the development of high-quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation.

There is $12 million available for allocation in the 2018/19 funding round. $500,000 is allocated within the $12 million available to projects that provide sport and recreation infrastructure to remote Aboriginal communities and regional communities with a significant aboriginal population.

Types of projects

Priority will be given to projects that lead to facility sharing and rationalisation. Multi-purpose facilities reduce infrastructure required to meet similar needs and increase sustainability.
The type of projects which will be considered for funding include:

  • Change rooms and ablutions.
  • Clubrooms including social space, kitchen, administration areas and viewing areas. Please note that these areas have a minimal impact on physical activity and would be considered a lower priority.
  • Floodlighting projects.
  • New Playing surfaces—ovals, courts synthetic surfaces etc.
  • Resurfacing of existing sports surfaces. It is expected that facility managers will budget for these items as part of the ongoing operation of the facility, frequently over 7 to 10 years, and will be considered a low priority for funding. If supported a resurfacing project may attract a reduced funding percentage.
  • Sports storage.
