The ClubGRANTS Scheme is a government initiative established to ensure that large registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of frontline services to support their local communities.

Community groups located in the Hawkesbury are invited to formally apply for funding for various community related projects. There are three categories of ClubGRANTS available for application:

Category 1 Funding

Specifically for local projects and/or services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community and aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. These projects encompass community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities.

Category 2 Funding

Generally for projects not listed or eligible under Category 1 Funding, such as sport and recreational clubs, cultural activities – visual and performing arts, charity fundraising, medical research and in-kind services such as complimentary room hire, fundraising products and prices and training facilities for elite athletes.

Category 3 Funding

Automatically paid by the Club into the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS Fund on a quarterly basis to support and develop large scale state wide projects or services. These can include; sports venues and facilities, hospitals and community health services, youth facilities, child care facilities, aged care facilities, education facilities, emergency services facilities, parks and recreation, community housing and community transport.
