Fund Objective

Establishment or improvement of playing areas or buildings necessary for the conduct of sport or for community use, to assist community groups in establishing a service or activity seen as a need for the betterment of and improvement to the enjoyment of life within the community.

Council’s general philosophy is to fund one third of the total project cost and applicants are encouraged to contribute their own funding and/or obtain grant funding for the remaining project costs.  The fund is not to be used for equipment, trophies, prizes or expenses, such as loan repayments, incurred in the conduct of the sport or in community activities.
