Disaster relief and support for sport and recreation clubs
NSW Government provides financial relief and support services for eligible sport and recreation clubs following a natural disaster.
Some types of support require a disaster declaration for the affected location. Disaster declarations are determined and updated on a rolling basis.
Disaster relief financial assistance
A grant or loan may be provided to sport and recreation clubs and associations as a contribution towards clean up, removal of debris and/or restoring essential facilities, equipment or other assets that have been damaged or destroyed by a disaster.
The maximum assistance provided to a single applicant is a grant of up to $2000 and/or a loan of up to $10,000.
Who is eligible?
- sport and recreation clubs and associations who have incurred costs as a result of the disaster, which are not recoverable through insurance, and who do not have the financial capacity to pay the costs from their own funds or reserves
- assistance is not provided to clubs that have sizeable commercial operations or gaming areas – such clubs may include golf clubs or bowling clubs.
