Eligible sporting clubs and organisations can now apply for funding through the 2020-2021 suite of infrastructure project grant programs consisting of:

  • Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program 2020-21 (CRSFP)
  • Grassroots Facilities Program Round 1 (GFP)
  • Regional and Districts Facilities Program Round 1 (RDFP)

In 2020-2021, $24,328,000 is available across the infrastructure projects suite of grant programs which have been streamlined given the existing grant programs’ similarities. These programs will assist organisations to develop infrastructure that will enable greater opportunity for participation in active recreation and sport for all South Australians through the rational development of well-designed and utilised facilities.

To make the process as easy as possible, the infrastructure project grant programs can be applied for under a single amalgamated application form via SmartyGrants.

Who can apply?

To be eligible for CRSFP, GFP, and RDFP funding, organisations must:

  • Be a not-for-profit sport club, association or sports facility manager incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 1985 (SA); or
  • Be a local council; or
  • Be a school council / board of management; and
  • Be operating for 12 months or longer

Note, organisations that hold Gaming Machine Licences will be ineligible for CRSFP funding.

For a comprehensive and complete breakdown of eligibility criteria please refer to the guidelines.

The three programs align with the objectives of the Game On: Getting South Australia moving initiative which aims to get South Australians moving and enjoying the many social, health and lifestyle benefits sport and recreation provide.

Please read the Program Guidelines prior to submitting an application for the infrastructure project grant programs for 2020-2021.
