$100 million investment in NSW sports facilities to enable more people to be active and healthy

$100 million investment in NSW sports facilities to enable more people to be active and healthy
December 23, 2020

The NSW Government's $100 million investment in developing and upgrading sports facilities across the State will contribute to enabling more people to participate in sport and to become more active and healthy.

Under the NSW Government’s Greater Cities and Regional Sport Facility Fund, the State Government announced in the recent budget that $50 million will be available to organisations and councils in 2020/21 with a further $50 million available next financial year.

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro advised “investing in new and existing sports infrastructure is vital to improving the health and wellbeing of people right across NSW.”

NSW Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said inclusive projects that encouraged the participation of females and people with a disability will be prioritised adding “The Greater Cities and Regional Sport Facility Fund will inject $100 million across metro and regional NSW as the State recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We want to build and upgrade sports facilities and recreation spaces to enable more people to participate in sport to be active, healthy and have fun.

“There will be new or upgraded change rooms and disability access and that will encourage more people to feel comfortable getting changed before or after their activity.”

The Greater Cities and Regional Sport Facility Fund will provide grants from $100,000 – $1 million. Applications close 26th February 2021.
