Winter 2021 Grants update


Feature Grant – Active Gameday Projects Funding – September

The Queensland government has announced new infrastructure funding for grassroots sport and active recreation clubs, to help them develop or upgrade playing fields as part of the Government’s Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan.

The Active Gameday Projects fund will help the economic recovery of the sport and recreation industry by investing in smaller scale infrastructure that benefits local communities. Funding of up to $150,000 will be available for eligible organisations and projects who are able to chip in 20 per cent of their project’s cost. The program is for fit-for-purpose works on playing spaces that meet grassroots level playing requirements and that encourage greater community participation.
Examples of projects that could receive funding include developing or upgrading playing surfaces and installing or upgrading irrigation and field lighting.

Active Gameday Projects is a new initiative of the Government’s Activate! Queensland strategy with the first funding round opening in September 2021.
