Armadale shares in McGowan Government funding boost
- McGowan Government announces CSRFF grant recipients
- Armadale receives $270,000
- Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund helps shape better communities by increasing physical activity, promoting inclusion and creating jobs
Dr Tony Buti said community sport in Armadale is set for a boost as part of the State Government’s $12 million grassroots sporting infrastructure program.
The City of Armadale has secured a $270,000 grant towards the construction of a challenge bicycle path at John Dunn Memorial Park.
The funding comes thanks to the latest round of the State Government’s Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).
Importantly, the project will create demand for construction work in Armadale, supporting local jobs and the local economy.
The CSRFF aims to increase participation in sport and recreation by helping build well-designed and well utilised facilities for grassroots sporting organisations around the State.
The fund has two rounds of small grants each year that open in February and July, and one larger grant round that opens in June. For more information, visit http://www.dsr.wa.gov.au/funding/facilities-(csrff)

“Western Australians love their sport and the State Government is committed to making sure our communities have quality places for people to get out and play sport.
“New sporting infrastructure ensures clubs can attract new members and retain existing ones – keeping communities healthy, engaged and inclusive.
“The funding provided by CSRFF not only boosts local sport, with project construction creating local jobs for WA small businesses and tradies in a range of industries.”
