Small Grants Funding Round 2019/20

Published: Thursday, 14 February 2019 at 9:34:28 AM


 The 2019/20 February Small Grants round of the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) is now open for projects with a value of $200,000 and less.

 Please find below the link to the CSRFF guidelines. This will provide clarification around the fund.                            

Application forms are now available should you wish to apply.

Applications must be submitted to local governments by the applicant (if not the local government) and subsequently submitted electronically to the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries Wheatbelt office no later than 4:0pm  Friday 29 MARCH 2019.

Local governments are required to assess the applications and approve Council endorsement by this date.

To be eligible prospective applicants must contact this office to obtain an application form and discuss eligibility for funding, advice, and assistance in preparing the submission.

Each application is judged on its merits and relative to other applications received in that round.  A previous approval for one type of project does not automatically mean that an application for a similar project will be approved.

Applications for projects that are ineligible, are incomplete or have unconfirmed financial components will hinder a projects ability to proceed.

A checklist is provided with-in the application form. Applicants must include all the required documentation to be eligible for funding.

 It is very important that applicants can demonstrate that their project will be completed and the grant satisfactorily acquitted within the proposed timeframe.  Applicants must take into account potential delays in construction and escalating building costs as part of the application process.  It is expected that applicants will complete their projects on time and deferrals should not be expected because of delays in the construction process or cost escalation.

 If you have any queries or wish to discuss your proposed project please contact me on or 9690 2400.

 Please note that applications must be forwarded to this office no later than 4:00pm FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2019.
