How to Apply

ClubGRANTS Guidelines and Funding Categories

There are several funding categories within the ClubGRANTS program:

Category 1 – is for specific community welfare projects, social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. Category 1 ClubGRANTS applications take place on an annual basis and are coordinated by Georges River Council and a committee of community representatives. Find out more about the application process and deadlines here.

Category 2 – is for other community development and support services, for example support for local sport and recreation groups, room hire waivers and other miscellaneous donations. This category of applications are open year-round and are made directly in writing to Club Central.

Category 3 – a state-wide pool where 0.4% of a club’s gaming machine profits over $1 million is directed to support large scale sport, health and community infrastructure. This category is administered by ClubNSW.

ClubsNSW Role

ClubsNSW does not directly provide Club GRANTS funding. Its role in the scheme is at a policy and co-ordination level. ClubGRANTS funding is provided by registered clubs.


Successful applicants are required to submit a closing report to the club upon completion of the project. Applicants should note that clubs and local committees will not consider further funding requests unless a report has been received. More information on reporting requirements is available here.
