CSRFF aims to increase physical activity and participation in sport and active recreation in Western Australia. The type of projects which will be considered for funding include: 

  • New playing surfaces — ovals, courts, synthetic surfaces etc.
  • Floodlighting projects (must be to Australian Standards)
  • Change rooms and ablutions
  • Sports storage

SMALL GRANTS

Total project cost up to $300,000

The CSRFF small grants program targets projects involving a basic level of planning. The total project cost for grant must not exceed $300,000. Grants given in this category must be claimed in the financial year following the date of approval. For projects with a grant request below $2500 it is expected that the applicant should be able to fully fund these.

Examples of small grant projects:

  • cricket pitch and practice wickets
  • safety upgrades for sport and recreation facilities
  • minor upgrades to a swimming pool
  • small floodlighting project
  • court upgrade
  • construction of shade shelters
  • planning studies (e.g. local government wide facilities plans, precinct master planning) to a maximum grant amount of $25,000. Note individual facility planning is considered a very low priority.
