The State Government has announced the Level 1 COVID-19 Business Assistance Package.
The Regional Organisation Grants (ROG) program aims to improve the quality of sporting opportunities for people in regional Western Australia, whilst assisting the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) meet its regional strategic outcomes.
ROG is a funding scheme only available to not-for-profit community organisations involved in the conduct of sport or physically active recreation and whose activities meet the primary objectives of this program.
Investing into an organisation’s strategic and/or organisational plan.
An organisation is assessed on its capacity to improve governance practices, implement learning and development and participation initiatives and its current strategic priorities and projects.
Organisations not recognised as a Regional, District or Zone body, overseeing regional operations.
Funding ranges from $5000 to $50,000 per annum, depending on category classification and scope of program delivery.
If your organisation is deemed eligible to obtain ROG funding, a representative from DLGSC will arrange a meeting to discuss funding opportunities prior to a formal application being submitted.
Regional sports must consult with their respective SSA during preparation of regional plans and obtain endorsement by the SSA for any application prior to submission.
An assessment will be made to determine if the application is eligible by assessing it against the grant criteria. If approved, a grant agreement will be entered into which outlines the grant conditions and acquittal requirements. Once signed and returned, the grant will be paid directly to the applicant body (organisation or association). No grant monies will be paid directly to an individual. The applicant body will be responsible for the acquittal of the grant and will be responsible to forward any approved funding to individuals as deemed necessary.
At the completion of the project, the applicant body will need to complete the acquittal documentation, acquittal statement and key results schedule, within 30 days and forward to DLGSC to demonstrate that the funds have been spent in accordance with the outlined grant agreement. Failure to comply with these requirements may jeopardise future funding from DLGSC.
Leading up to, during and following the funding period, the relevant regional office will meet with the applicant body as part of the funding process and will highlight all required documentation during that period.
To discuss your application or to obtain assistance to complete your application, please contact your DLGSC regional office.
