Facility Design Grants 2019-2020

Facility Design Grants Program

Corangamite Shire Council has launched a program to support recreation facility design across all categories.

This program will provide financial assistance to sporting clubs to fund schematic designs for redevelopment or new facilities, where communities conduct, organise and participate in sport and recreation.

The Facility Design Grants Program 2019-2020 offers grants of up to $7500 to help sporting clubs pay for schematic designs to redevelop their facilities, or to plan new ones. Council has approved $30,000 for the grant program in its 2019-2020 Budget.

This funding will let sporting groups with financial capacity and relevant projects to be “shovel ready” for future applications to grant programs.”

Sporting clubs and organisations whose main facilities are in the Shire are eligible to apply and it is hoped the program would improve residents’ experience of taking part in sport and recreation.

Council is committed to supporting opportunities for people to engage in healthy and active lifestyles, and to providing high-quality community facilities

Applications open on Monday 1 July and close 5 pm Friday 23 August 2019.

To ensure the best chance of success all applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines carefully and discuss their project with Acting Manager Facilities and Recreation Jane Hinds.
