Grants Available under Active Clubs Program

The Active Club Program is currently open for and helps active recreation and sports clubs with:

  • programs and equipment (up to $5,000)

The grant is for a maximum of $5,000 and funds are allocated on the basis of $10,000 per state electorate. Some electorates have unspent funds from previous rounds so in some electorates there is more than the $10,000 available. The application process is very simple and and you can submit a suitable application that meets the needs of your club. Clubs are being encouraged to apply for the maximum amount. Last round there were some 600 applications and just over one in four were successful.

Application closing date of October 12th 2015.

There will also be a facility round (Round 41) open in early 2016.
