There are three classes of expenditure under the ClubGrants scheme:
- Category 1 funding is specifically for local projects and/or services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community and are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. These projects encompass Community Welfare & Social Services, Community Development, Community Health Services and Employment Assistance Activities.
- Category 2 funding is generally for projects not listed or eligible for Category 1 funding such as Sport and Recreational Clubs, Cultural Activities – Visual/Performing Arts, Charity Fundraising, Medical Research and in-kind services such as Complimentary Room Hire, Fundraising Products and Prizes and Training Facilities for Elite Athletes.
- Category 3 funding is automatically paid by the club into the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS Fund on a quarterly basis to support and develop large scale State-wide projects or services such as Sports Venues and Facilities, Hospitals and Community Health Services, Youth Facilities, Child Care Facilities, Aged Care Facilities, Educational Facilities, Emergency Services Facilities, Parks and Recreation, Community Housing and Community Transport.
