Active Recreation Project Funding
Active Recreation Project Funding is provided to match Shoalhaven based sporting organisations to undertake community driven projects for new works or improvements to existing capital fixed infrastructure at sporting facilities on Council managed land. Eligible projects are required to have relevant sporting association endorsement.
Council’s matching financial contribution is available up to $2.00 from Council for each $1.00 contributed by sporting organisations.
The funding for sporting organisations who wish to accumulate funds for a larger strategic project can carrying over Council’s matching contribution to the next financial year. However, funds will only be carried over to match the amount collected by Council from the sporting organisation for the nominated strategic project.
Applications for first round funding close on 1 July and the second round closes on 1 November each year.
Nominations for project funding will be considered by the Shoalhaven Sports Board. Council’s Voluntary User Contribution Policy (http://doc.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/displaydoc.aspx?record=POL12/315) and the Community Infrastructure Guidelines should be read in conjunction when seeking Active Recreation Project Funding.
Passive Recreation Projects Funding
Passive Recreation Project Funding is provided to match Shoalhaven based community organisations to undertake community driven projects on Council managed land and which primarily occur in park and playground locations. In doing so, the program recognises the value of community organisations to undertake and provide projects to meet their community needs. Examples of such projects that are eligible to receive funding are listed in the Community Infrastructure Guidelines. Funding for this program will offer up to a dollar for dollar basis.
