The ClubGRANTS Scheme

Through the ClubGRANTS scheme, large registered clubs in NSW contribute directly to the provision of front-line services to their local communities and ensure that the disadvantaged benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.

In 2013, New South Wales clubs gave more than $90 million in funding under Categories 1 and 2 of the ClubGRANTS scheme to thousands of NSW community groups, charities and sporting organisations. Since its inception in 1998, the ClubGRANTS scheme has delivered almost $1 billion in funding to local communities.

ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund

In 2011 the ClubGRANTS scheme was expanded with the development of the ClubGRANTS Category 3 stream, a state-wide funding pool established to support the development of large scale sport, health and community infrastructure projects. Approximately $12 million will be available each year, with the funds derived from large registered clubs.

The ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund is managed by the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing within NSW Trade & Investment. Information about the application and assessment process is provided below. If you would like further information please email clubgrants.category3@olgr.nsw.gov.au or phone (02) 9995 0575.

The ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund supports the development of high quality, accessible, sustainable and well used community large scale infrastructure projects. In line with the State Government's commitment in NSW 2021 to increasing participation in sport, recreational, arts and cultural activities in rural and regional NSW, and supporting healthy lifestyles, the focus in 2014/15 will be on development and enhancement of sport, recreation and cultural facilities.
