Program Function: The NSW Government recognises the critical role local sport infrastructure plays in keeping communities healthy, active and connected and so has committed $200 million to the Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund, of which just over $100 million was allocated for Round 2.

The Fund will deliver the best outcomes for the community by creating places and facilities that enable communities to enjoy and take part in sport.

The NSW Government is supporting local communities to future-proof infrastructure by funding universally designed and inclusive facilities that move beyond compliance and provide dignified inclusion for all.

The Fund will support the development of well-designed new and improved multi-sport infrastructure projects that will meet the current and future needs of the community.

The Fund will support the delivery of sport facility projects that can directly support sport participation across all levels and provide programs for those people in the community that need it most.

Program Term: Applications opened on 27 June 2022, closed on 2 September 2022 and grants were announced in November 2022. Projects are expected to commence by July 2023 with construction completed by 31 December 2025.

Applicants: A total of 83 applications were submitted for consideration, 39 of which were successful. The total amount awarded through Round 2 of the Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund is $102,600,129 for projects with a total value including co-contributions of $225,030,570.

Probity: The Office of Sport engages an independent probity advisor to oversee its grant programs. The role of the probity advisor is to ensure program administration satisfies probity principles of impartiality, fairness, accountability, confidentiality and achieves policy objectives. In doing this the probity advisor:

  • Reviews and provides feedback on key program documents
  • Provides clarifications to queries when required
  • Recommends management action for conflicts of interest and any other probity issues that arise
  • Attends assessment meetings to ensure, amongst other things, that assessment criteria are applied diligently, and the assessment is based on information provided by applicants.

With respect to this particular grant program, the probity advisor confirms the process was open and fair and there are no outstanding probity issues.

Source Agency: The NSW Office of Sport administered the Program on behalf of the NSW Government. Final decisions on the award of funding were made by the Minister for Sport.
