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.
