Council grants open

By David Rak

Applications for the Local Sports Infrastructure Fund are now open.

Councils and Alpine Resort Boards can apply for grants across five streams: aquatic centres and indoor stadiums, strategic facilities, female-friendly facilities, community facilities and planning.

Eligible projects include aquatic centre upgrades, sports grounds and pavilion developments, new sport surfaces, lighting installations, strategic and regional planning, and active recreation facilities such as play spaces and recreation trails.

Interested clubs should discuss project proposals with their local council, with applications closing on February 14, 2020.
