Cricket clubs and councils in New South Wales can apply for grants to improve cricket facilities and infrastructure.
The NSW Government is committing $6 million over the next three years to support the growth of cricket participation in NSW.
Funding is available for:
- Infrastructure – The fund can be used to upgrade or create new wickets, ovals, amenities or facilities. Grants from $15,000 to $250,000 are available and may support up to 50 per cent of the net project costs.
- Programs and resources to grow female participation – The fund can be used to facilitate programs or purchase equipment aligned to growing female participation. Grants from $5000 to $50,000 are available and may support up to 50 per cent of the net project costs.
- Regional events – The fund can be used to assist regional councils to secure and deliver elite cricket tournaments. Grants from $20,000 to $100,000 are available and may support up to 50 per cent of the net project costs.
NSW Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the fund will help to improve the quality and quantity of community facilities, as well as attract world-class cricket matches to regional NSW.
Applications close Friday 13 July 2018.
