Applications are now open for the Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Grants program, designed to support the active sporting community on the Northern Beaches.
There is $100,000 in grants available, with a minimum grant value of $10,000 and a maximum grant value of $50,000.
Eligible, incorporated, not for profit organisations can apply to build new or upgrade existing infrastructure on a Council owned or managed facility that improves local sport and recreation facilities.
Projects must do one or more of these:
- increase opportunities for participation in sport, recreation and active play
- improve the viability of sport and recreation groups
- develop safe, accessible and family-friendly facilities.
Mayor Michael Regan encouraged eligible sporting clubs and organisations to apply.
“We’ve been able to support 14 clubs through this program over the past three years, helping to fund their small to medium-sized projects.
“We helped the Careel Bay Tennis Club with a new sunshade over their children’s play equipment, Manly Warringah Junior Cricket Association with eight new cricket nets at Nolan Reserve and the Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club to make improvements to the change facilities at their Jamieson Park clubhouse.
“I’d encourage all sporting groups to learn more about the grants program and see if there is a way they can be supported.”
