The ClubGRANTS Scheme was designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the contributions made by those clubs.
ClubGRANTS also facilitates contributions by larger clubs towards infrastructure to support sporting, health and community activities.
ClubGRANTS Guidelines and Funding Categories
The new ClubGRANTS Guidelines are available online. Applicants should read the new Guidelines to determine whether they are eligible for ClubGRANTS funding. There are three funding categories under the ClubGRANTS scheme:
- Category 1 - expenditure on specific community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities;
- Category 2 - expenditure on other community development and support services (eg. traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups);
- Category 3 - expenditure represents 0.4% of a club's gaming machine profits over $1 million which is placed in a state wide pool to support large scale sport, health and community infrastructure.
How to Apply
As the clubs in the Camden Local Government Area have a combined liability of less than $30,000 under Category 1, a local committee is not required to be formed, therefore applications for funding under Category 1 are to be sent to individual clubs.
