The Town of Mosman Park has grants available to Clubs and organisations to help fund the development of sporting and recreational facilities within the Town. Facility development means either the construction of new facilities or the upgrade of existing facilities. It does not include maintenance or operational expenses.
The Town offers grants through the Community Sporting and Recreation Facility Fund (CSRFF). The CSRFF is managed by the State Government via the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries.
The Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries' Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) aims to increase participation in sport and recreation with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.
Types of projects include:
- Change rooms and ablutions.
- Clubrooms including social space, kitchen, administration areas and viewing areas. Please note that these areas have a minimal impact on physical activity and would be considered a lower priority.
- Floodlighting projects.
- New Playing surfaces—ovals, courts synthetic surfaces etc.
- Resurfacing of existing sports surfaces. It is expected that facility managers will budget for these items as part of the ongoing operation of the facility, frequently over 7 to 10 years, and will be considered a low priority for funding. If supported a resurfacing project may attract a reduced funding percentage.
- Sports storage.
There are three types of CSRFF grants –
- Small Grants - $2,500–$66,666 will be allocated to projects involving a basic level of planning.
- Annual Grants - $66,667 – $166,666 will be allocated to projects with a planning and construction process that will be complete within 12 months.
- Forward Planning Grants - $166,667–$2,000,000 will be allocated to the large scale projects where the total project cost exceeds $500,000 and may require an implementation period of between one and three years.
Further information about the CSRFF is available at Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries website.
Applicants must discuss their intentions with the Town prior to a submission being made. To avoid disappointment it is highly recommended that groups plan well in advance for any facility developments. Groups should advise Council in writing two to three years prior to their official application so that the allocation of funds can be planned (especially for Annual and Forward Planning grants). Please contact the Community Development Team to discuss potential projects on 9383 6600 or email email@example.com.
