Club Grants is a statewide initiative that provides financial support for projects and services that contribute to the wellbeing of local communities.
Category 1 Club Grants are available to the community and not for profit organisations for projects that meet the funding priorities and comply with grant program guidelines.
Clubs that earn over $1 million annually in gaming machine revenue provide funding for community projects and services, and in turn receive dollar-for-dollar gaming tax deductions. Each year through Club Grants, clubs across NSW provide support to tens of thousands of local community organisations, sporting groups, and charities that make a difference in their local area. The scheme was introduced in 1998 by the NSW Government and allows clubs to claim a tax deduction of up to 1.5% on gaming machine revenue over $1 million for monies spent on community support.
The funding is provided by five registered clubs across the Shire. They are the Bermagui Country Club, Club Bega, Club Sapphire Merimbula, Eden Fishermen’s Recreation Club and the Merimbula RSL.
Full details on the operation of the scheme are contained within the Club Grants Gaming Machine Tax Act 2001 Guidelines
Applicants for Club Grants Category 1 funding should follow these steps:
Applications for the 2020 grant round will be called for in approximately March 2020.
Note: Applicants in receipt of funding from previous grant rounds who would like to apply for the 2020 round must report their spending by completing a Standard Funding Report Form (acquittal) before an application for 2020 will be considered.
