Local clubs share in McGowan Government funding boost
- McGowan Government announces CSRFF grant recipients
- Local organisations receive 660,000.00
- 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 the Armadale and Jandakot electorates are set for a boost as part of the McGowan Government’s $12 million grassroots sporting infrastructure program.
The City of Armadale has secured $660,000.00 grant towards a new pavilion at the William Skeet at Forrestdale and the redevelopment of the pavilion and playing fields at Morgan Park, Armadale.
The funding comes thanks to the latest round of the McGowan Government's Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).
These projects will create demand for construction work in the Armadale area, 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)
