Regional Servicing Grants aim to improve the capacity and grow participation at a regional level through a State Sporting Association (SSA), and to improve the quality of sporting opportunities for people in regional Western Australia.
Servicing a sport and recreation need within a region.
An application will be assessed and a recommendation made based on the SSA's capacity to improve governance, implement learning and development, conduct and implement participation initiatives and deliver identified services to a particular region/s.
Current funding and identified priority areas, along with regional servicing plans, are also taken into consideration.
Performance of the SSA will also be considered against the areas funded through the Industry Investment Program (IIP).
State Sporting Association or industry peak body overseeing regional operations.
Organisations not recognised as either a state sporting association or industry peak body overseeing regional sporting operations.
Funding ranges from $5000 to $20,000 per annum per region depending on the demonstrated need of the sport, and capacity to deliver against the identified regional clubs and participation base.
The maximum amount of funding any SSA can receive is capped at $100,000 per annum.
The SSA must also consult with their respective regional clubs and associations during preparation of regional servicing plans.
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).
At the completion of the project, the applicant body will need to complete the acquittal documentation within 90 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.
