The CSRFF provides $12 million a year to community groups and local governments to develop infrastructure for sport and recreation. The last round of the program allocated more than $3 million to projects which provide change rooms and facilities for women.

Applications for the latest round of funding are now open, with changes to the program for 2020-21 including:

  • An increase in base funding set aside for women's facilities, to $500,000; and
  • A 50 per cent increase in the maximum project cost for small grants, from $200,000 to $300,000, reducing red tape and paperwork for applicants. 

The CSRFF aims to increase participation in sport and recreation by helping build well-designed and well-utilised facilities for grassroots sporting organisations around the State.
