$3.5 million backing for regional sporting facilities in Western Australia

February 17, 2017

The final latest round of monies to be distributed by the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund prior to the Western Australian election will see $3.5 million spent on 10 regional sport and recreation projects.

Part of an $11.9 million commitment for community projects in latest round in metropolitan and regional areas, the funding will include $110,240 going towards upgrading the lighting Albany’s Collingwood Park - home to 1,500 sporting club members from AFL cricket and touch rugby.

Other major funding commitments include $1 million going towards the redevelopment of the Armadale Aquatic Centre, $2 million for the development of the City of Wanneroo’s Butler North District Open space and $1.5 million for the construction of a new outdoor 50 metre swimming pool at the Northam Recreation Centre.

The regional funding commitements followed the announcement of $8.4 million for 16 metropolitan projects, bringing the total investment to $11.9 million as part of the latest CSRFF round.

Commenting on the allocations, outgoing Western Australian Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies stated “sporting clubs are the life blood of local communities, which is why the (Western Australian) Government has made an unprecedented investment in grassroots sporting facilities in our regions, as well as other regional sporting grants to help athletes who live and train in country Western Australia."

Other Western Australian Government regional sporting programs that help clubs and athletes access quality facilities and training expertise include the Regional Organisation Sustainability Program, Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme and active regional communities grants.

The Western Australian Government's commitment to a stronger sporting system has included investing in more than 46 sporting ovals; 43 swimming pools; 92 clubrooms; 300 tennis, basketball and netball courts; 90 bowling greens and 171 floodlighting developments.

The Government is also investing $15 million in the Centennial Park redevelopment in Albany.

The Western Australian Department of Sport and Recreation administers CSRFF annually through two rounds of Small Grants (up to $200,000 in total project cost) and one round of Annual and Forward Planning Grants (from $200,001 in total project cost).
