The ClubGRANTS Scheme


To ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.


Applying for ClubGRANTS funding is quick and easy. All funding is processed locally and community groups can contact their local clubs easily and at any time for information and advice. ClubGRANTS is also flexible, allowing clubs to provide support quickly, efficiently, and often as soon as a need emerges.

Funding and in-kind support is available under three separate categories:

  • Category 1 supports community welfare and social services; community development; employment assistance activities; community health services; and projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. 
  • Category 2  Provides funding for general community development and support activities, such as junior sport. 
  • Category 3 is a state-wide fund that supports large-scale community infrastructure projects. Grants are available for sport, emergency and disaster relief, and arts and culture infrastructure. 

To apply

Visit the ‘Find Your Local Grant Round’ page on the ClubsNSW ClubGRANTS website to find which clubs in your area provide ClubGRANTS funding. 

There is no standard state-wide closing date for ClubGRANTS Category 1 or 2 funding. Category 1 funding is allocated on the basis of local government areas, and Local Committees set their own deadlines, which vary from area to area. Opening and closing dates are available on Committee Search listings. Clubs allocate Category 2 funding and while some clubs set deadlines, most accept and consider Category 2 applications year-round. Category 2 applicants should contact the individual clubs for more information.


To be eligible to apply, you must be a not-for-profit organisation and provide the following project and/or services: community welfare or social services, community development, community health services or employment assistance activities. You are also eligible if you or your organisation is involved in community or professional sport.
