November 26, 2018

A total of 23 grassroots sporting projects from across Western Australia will share in more than $634,000 in the latest round of the Western Australian Government's Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).

Successful projects will provide communities from Kununurra, to Beeliar and Albany with access to improved playing fields, better courts, new women's facilities and change room improvements.

The funding round also includes projects on disability access, BMX track improvements, cricket nets, bowling greens and other facilities.

The CSRFF has two rounds of small grants each year that open in February and July. It also has two larger grant rounds.

Commenting on the funding, Western Australian Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray stated "grassroots sport is a bedrock of communities in the country and a driver of healthier, more connected lives in the city.This round of funding supports a diverse range of projects, from disability access, to improved playing fields, change rooms and other facilities.
