Improving the Playing Field Grants Program 2021-22

Overview

This Tasmanian Government program supports sports and recreation, and the building and construction industry.

Improving the Playing Field offers financial assistance to upgrade amenities at sporting facilities around Tasmania, allowing them to cater for all participants. In 2021-22 the funding pool has been increased to $10 million.

Funding available

The Grants Program will provide funding through two streams, small and large grants.

  • Grants of $25 000 up to $50 000 will be provided through the small grants stream.
  • Grants of $50 001 up to $500 000 will be provided through the large grants stream.

Applicants should contribute at least 15 per cent of the total project cost and higher priority may be given to projects demonstrating higher levels of support.

Applicants can submit applications for as many projects as they wish. If an organisation submits multiple applications, the applicant must rank them in order of priority.

Eligible Projects

Projects must develop or improve functional and inclusive amenities and could include (but are not limited to) change rooms, toilets and shower facilities, accessibility, lighting, security, fencing, scoreboards, drainage and other civil construction works.

Projects must demonstrate support from the relevant facility owner and/or State sporting organisation.
