The WA Government has fast-tracked $12 million in funding applications for community sport and recreation projects to expedite the projects and support Western Australia's economy as part of the COVID-19 recovery. 

Applications for Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund's (CSRFF) Annual and Forward Planning grants of up to $2 million will now open on Monday, May 25, 2020, and close on Friday, September 11, 2020. 

The program provides financial assistance to community groups and local governments to develop basic, sustainable infrastructure to increase participation in sport and recreation.

The grants will allow local not-for-profit sport, recreation or community groups and local governments to develop basic, sustainable infrastructure to increase participation in sport and recreation, while supporting the economy and creating jobs. 

Successful projects will be announced in late 2020, allowing them to commence sooner than would have otherwise been possible. 

Additionally, the July 2020 small grants round (for grants up to $100,000) will opened on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, and will close on Friday, August 14, 2020. This will allow the successful applicants to be announced in October 2020. 

The WA Government administers the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) program through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
