Community Participation Funding by Department of Sport and Recreation

Info: The Community Participation Funding scheme is open year round and encouraging applications!

Amounts from $1000 - $5000 are available for projects which target at low participation groups including (but not limited to) CaLD, indigenous and people with disabilities.

Programs need to target one of two key objectives including;
•Participation: How will your project increase the physical activity levels of target groups who currently have low participation rates?
•People Development: How will your project improve the skills of the volunteers or staff of your organisation or community group that is targeting low participation groups?

There are a list of items which will and will not be covered under this scheme as well as some criteria that needs to be met in your application. These can all be found in the Community Participation Guidelines located on our website.

Groups wishing to apply for this funding can access an application form from this website as well as view case studies from successfully funded programs. Applicants are encouraged to think about how their program can continue on an ongoing basis, link participants to physical activity in the longer term and be sustainable.
