The Clubgrants scheme was established in 1998 to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to 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.
On 2 August 2017 the NSW Government announced improvements to the Clubgrants guidelines to allow registered clubs to fund a wider range of local infrastructure projects. Refer to the updated Clubgrants guidelines (PDF, 424KB) for more information.
Clubgrants funding for community projects is available under three separate grants programs.

Clubgrants guidelines (PDF, 424KB) include requirements for Category 1, 2 and 3 expenditure, accountability and reporting, application and funding processes, and Category 1 local committees.
The Clubgrants guidelines are supplemented by a Special Clubgrants guideline - Transition of Local Committees (PDF, 135KB). This special guideline provides the transitional arrangements for Category 1 local committees in Local Government Areas that have been amalgamated in NSW.
