ACT Community Sport Facilities Program Funding

Posted: 23/02/23 by Collision of Awesome

ACT Community Sport Facilities Program (CSFP) is designed to provide financial assistance to not-for-profit sport, recreation and community organisations to contribute to the development of fit for purpose, sustainable and accessible places and spaces for sport and active recreation with up to $1M in funding.

Next Level Club Facilities

It's well documented that sport and recreation are vital for both individual mental health and the health of the broader community through group participation and individual health pursuits. The purpose of this funding is to help unlock the potential of the ACT's rising sports stars by providing state of the art facilities as well as ensuring inclusivity for all sports participants with improved changing room facilities.

This includes enhancement of ACT Public School facilities that improve access and use by community sport and recreation organisations; and upgrades to existing facilities that enhance the participation experience and the opportunities for social connection in the community sport setting.

Program Objectives

  1. support the delivery of good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities that will increase participation opportunities in sport and active recreation in the ACT;
  2. contribute to the development of safe, accessible and inclusive infrastructure that enables organisations to enhance participation experiences;
  3. grow participation in sport and active recreation, placing a focus on disadvantaged and underrepresented groups;
  4. encourage a collaborative and innovative approach in the development of sport and recreation facilities in the ACT;
  5. encourage the development of practical, multi-functional, low maintenance sport and recreation facilities; and
  6. promote and incorporate environmental sustainability and climate resiliency into design, construction and operation.
