Government Grants and Funding

Your club could be eligible for a range of state and federal government grants and funding opportunities to assist with the costs of new and improved infrastructure, the development and delivery of sport programs, and purchasing equipment.

We regularly notify clubs of these opportunities. We also maintain a list of current opportunities here. Take a look at our list below to see what is available to help your club with vital funding assistance right now.

  • Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program
  • Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) provided at a reduced cost

    The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program allocates $4 million over four years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).

    An AED is a life saving device which delivers a controlled shock to an individual experiencing cardiac arrest, increasing their chances of survival.

    The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program provides NSW sports clubs and councils the opportunity to acquire an AED package for their club or sports facility at a reduced cost.

    An AED package will include:

    • An AED
    • AED familiarisation instruction (within 28 days of delivery)
    • A minimum of six years of essential AED maintenance

    Applications close at 5 pm, Monday 24 February 2020. For more information and to apply, click here.
