Non-Council Grants

Grants Currently Available


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.

Community Building Partnership 2022

Applications are now OPEN  
Applications close Friday 10 June 2022 at 5pm AEST sharp 
All projects must be completed by 31 March 2024

The NSW Government is investing in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes, while also promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.  
Since 2009, the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects.  

In 2022, there is a maximum of $400,000 to allocate in each electorate. Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000. The average grant awarded is around $20,000.  

Projects with contributions from their own, or other sources, will be considered favourably. Local councils, including their section 355 committees, are required to provide matched funding to the CBP grants.  

As total funding will be divided equally among the state electorates of NSW, applications will be assessed against other proposed projects within the same electorate.
