Millions Available in Sports Grants

The Northern Beaches sports infrastructure investment boom is continuing following the opening of Round 2 of the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund.

The Fund provides grants for new and upgraded sports facilities in Greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.

Member for Manly, James Griffin said the Fund would improve sport infrastructure for the sport-loving Northern Beaches community.


“The health and wellbeing benefits of sport and active recreation can’t be underestimated,” Mr Griffin said.

“The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund is improving local sports facilities and active recreational spaces, and enabling more people to participate in sport and active recreation.

“I encourage local organisations to apply for a grant under the Fund.”

The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund provides grants of $100,000 - $1 million to peak sporting bodies and councils in 33 local government areas in Greater Sydney, the City of Newcastle and Wollongong City.

Eligible projects include lighting, amenity buildings, clubrooms, change rooms and grandstands.

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the Fund is stimulating local economies, boosting employment and promoting healthy lifestyles across NSW.

“It’s vital to invest in new and existing sports for NSW residents,” Mrs Ward said.

“Inclusive projects that encourage the participation of females and people with disability are a priority of the Fund.

“The Fund is creating a sports infrastructure construction boom across the State as part of the Government’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure pipeline.”

Applications open 30 August 2021 and close 8 October 2021 at noon.
