Round 2 of the Greater Cities and Regional Sport Facility Fund is now open and will provide grants from $100,000 up to $1 million to eligible sport and recreation organisations and local councils. 

Projects eligible for funding can include: 

  • lighting
  • amenity building

  • change rooms 
  • grandstands

Inclusive projects that encourage the participation of women and girls and people with a disability are also welcome.

Sport Minister Natalie Ward said the funding is not just an important boost for local economies and jobs, but also promotes health and wellbeing for residents across NSW.

“By investing in new and existing sports infrastructure, we are helping more people experience the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation,” Mrs Ward said.
