NSW – Infrastructure Grants Program

Grants - Open grants, NSW Grants

The Office of Responsible Gambling develops and implements programs and initiatives, funded by the Responsible Gambling Fund , as part of a strategic approach that supports responsible gambling and prevents and minimises the risk of gambling related harm in the community.

The Office supports the Responsible Gambling Fund Trust to ensure funding recommendations to the Minister are consistent with the objectives of the fund and associated governance documents.  Broad areas for funding include:

  • a comprehensive research agenda to provide thought leadership and better inform the development of responsible gambling policy
  • community education to support well informed gambling choices, responsible gambling behaviours and resilient communities as well as de-stigmatising help seeking behaviour
  • intervention through provision of support and counselling services, including early access through increased online and self-help tools
  • supporting Liquor & Gaming NSW policy development and regulatory oversight and enforcement of responsible gambling obligations and practices.

The Office also administers the Clubgrants Category 3 infrastructure grants program and the Community Development Fund .

The Office sits within the Liquor, Gaming & Racing Division of the Department of Industry.

The NSW Government offers grants to communities across NSW to support the building, renovation and fitout of infrastructure. Funding is available for arts and cultural infrastructure, sport and recreation infrastructure and projects that enhance facilities used to shelter communities and provide emergency services.

Infrastructure Grants are made possible through the NSW Government’s Club grants Category 3 Fund, which reinvests a contribution from the state’s registered clubs gaming machine profits back into community projects.

For 2018/19, three grant rounds are available:

September 2018 Round

Opens – Monday, 3 September 2018

Closes – Monday, 24 September 2018
