2020 Sutherland Shire Cateogry 1 ClubGRANTS postponed

Due to the government mandated shut down of all registered clubs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ClubsGRANTS funding is likely to reduce in the short term as a response to economic uncertainty and the fact that clubs are not trading.

As a result the Sutherland Shire ClubGRANTS Local Committee is suspending the opening of the 2020 category 1 ClubGRANTS Program until further notice.

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
