Closing date extended for NSW Community Sport Recovery Package

Community Sport Recovery Package

Following the success of the Community Sport Recovery Package in 2020, the NSW Government is making up to $20.3 million available in 2021, helping ensure sport and recreation organisations recommence operations and NSW residents can resume the activities they love.

Grassroots Sport Fund

The Grassroots Sport Fund will provide a one-off grant of up to $1,000 to around 12,500 eligible local clubs and associations across the State to assist them with recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 and the recommencement of community sport.

The Grassroots Sport Fund will support eligible sporting clubs and associations affiliated to State Sporting Organisations (SSOs) and State Sporting Organisations for People with Disability (SSODs) recognised by the Office of Sport.

The Grassroots Sport Fund will assist organisations with fixed costs, irrecoverable costs due to cancellation of events that were incurred as a result of COVID-19 stay at home orders or for activities associated with a return to sport.

The application process for the Grassroots Sport Fund will be administered by the respective SSO/SSOD for each sport and supported by the Office of Sport where required.
