Council recognises the valuable contribution the sport and recreation community makes in supporting the healthy and active lifestyle we enjoy within the Scenic Rim. As part of Council's commitment to assist and improve the viability of our clubs, we are inviting not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations to apply for funding from the Sport and Recreation Grants Program. Eligible projects include minor infrastructure or facility improvements and minor capital projects.
Please be advised that the guidelines are reviewed annually to ensure the program continues to meet the needs of our sport and recreation community.
Tips for a great grant:
- Respond to each criteria in the guidelines.
- Demonstrate the need for the project and the broader community benefit it will bring (remember to attach any planning documents your club may have completed, such as strategic plans).
- Demonstrate collaboration (talk to your club members and get their input into your plans - partnerships between community organisations and stakeholder clubs is also required).
- Ensure you talk to Council officers regarding any Building and Development permits you may need.
- Provide a clear budget outline including any in-kind or monetary contributions from your club.
- Contact Council to discuss your project if you have any questions.
