Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund

The Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) is a funding program offered by the State Government to assist in the development of basic sporting infrastructure with a focus on increasing physical activity in the community.

The CSRFF program represents a partnership opportunity for community organisations to work with the City of Joondalup and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries; each contributing one third to the total project cost. Examples of successful past projects include:

  • Floodlighting upgrades
  • Facility redevelopments
  • New (or replacement) synthetic playing surface

Clubroom meeting room, kitchen, offices and viewing areas are considered to have a minimal impact on physical activity and are considered a lower priority. Resurfacing of existing sports surfaces are considered the responsibility of the asset owner and are a lower priority.


Examples of projects which will not be considered for funding include:

  • Development of privately owned facilities (eligible projects are required to be located on crown land or land owned by a local government authority)
  • Arts, music, craft and non-physical recreation facilities
  • Recurring maintenance or operating costs of existing facilities
  • Purchase of land, landscaping, car parks, access roads, playgrounds, bikeways or pathways
  • Projects that have received financial support from the City through another funding program, for example Sports Development Program
  • Non-land based facilities
  • Non-fixed equipment
  • Fixed sports specific equipment (eg. scoreboards)
  • Facilities or fixtures for the purpose of serving alcohol
  • Projects that do not meet the relevant Australian Standards and Construction Codes including access requirements for persons with a disability.

Clubs have an opportunity to submit an Expression of Interest form in February each year; this must be submitted to be eligible for funding from the City.
