Funding Grants and Scholarships – Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries
The purpose of the program is to provide Western Australian Government financial assistance to community groups and local government authorities to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation.
The program aims to increase participation in sport and recreation, with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of sustainable, good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.
Through CSRFF, the State Government will invest annually in the development of high-quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation.
There is $12 million available for allocation in the 2019/20 funding round.
