ClubGRANTS is a community development funding program sponsored by our local clubs, but administered by Council.

The program is designed to ensure that the larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services in their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs. The scheme enables registered clubs with an annual gaming machine revenue exceeding $1m, to apply 1.85% of their gaming machine revenue to community development and support projects.

The participating club in our area is North Sydney Leagues Club (Norths)


North Sydney Category 1 funding 

ClubGRANTS Category 1 is for expenditure on specific community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. In particular, expenditure on projects and services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community, and that are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.

Note that the ClubGRANTS scheme is focused on supporting community organisations and activities within a clubs local area. Although applicants from outside ClubGRANTS council areas can apply under the ClubGRANTS Guidelines (424KB), preference is typically given to local applicants.
