What are ClubGRANTS?

ClubGRANTS are designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities; and to ensure the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs. ClubGRANTS also facilitates contributions by larger clubs towards infrastructure to support sporting, health, and community activities. 

Under The Gaming Machine Tax Act 2001, a distinction is made between three classes of ClubGRANTS expenditure:

  • Category 1: Expenditure on specific community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. Category 1 is administered by Blacktown City Council.
  • Category 2: Expenditure on other community development and support services. Category 2 is administered by West HQ.
  • Category 3: Contributions by clubs to the ClubGRANTS Fund. Category 3 is administered by the NSW Government.

Update – 20 July 2021

Due to the Mandatory Stay at Home Order announced by the NSW Government, West HQ is temporarily closed.

As a consequence of this, West HQ is no longer taking ClubGRANTS applications.

As soon as West HQ understands the implications of the Stay At Home Order on the ClubGRANTS year ending 31 August 2021 (which may be extended) – successful applicants will be notified to confirm funding arrangements.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the heart of Greater Western Sydney soon.
