    As stated by Sport and Recreation Minister Tony Buti:

    “The McGowan Government is committed to developing sport and recreation facilities to help keep Western Australians healthy and active.

    “Through CSRFF, we’re investing $12.5 million in the 2022-23 financial year towards the development of quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation.

    “We know that, through sharing of multi-purpose facilities, the cost of the infrastructure required to meet the demand for community sport facilities is reduced, as is the cost of operating facilities.

    “It is exciting to see so many projects that are addressing this to maximise participation in sport and recreation across the State.

    “I encourage local governments, community organisations and sport or active recreation clubs, to check their eligibility to apply for the current round of grants, which close next month.”
