Sutherland Shire 2020 Cateogry 1 ClubGRANTS

ClubGRANTS is an initiative of the NSW Government and ClubsNSW to provide funding for community development projects and services that have a direct impact on the Sutherland Shire community.

Applicants should be aware that ClubGRANTS funding is significantly reduced this year due to clubs not trading as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, making this a very competitive grant round. Only applications that align to the ClubGRANTS Guidelines and local Sutherland Shire priorities will be considered for funding.

More information about the ClubGRANTS program is available from ClubsNSW.

For further advice please contact Council's Community Development and Grants Advisor, Vanessa Zanotti, on 9710 0602 or
