Regional footy scores in NSW Government grants

The Bathurst Giants will receive almost $300,000 from the NSW Government’s Level the Playing Field grant.

Six regional venues and footy communities succeeded in their applications to receive the NSW Government’s new Level the Playing Field grant, with project funding reaching almost $5.5 million for these footy specific projects.

The program will fund the construction of new and upgraded sports facilities, including amenities and lighting improvements across NSW. It allowed for projects between $200,000-$2 million.

Just 26 grants were awarded across the state, so it is a credit to the hardworking footy club volunteers who submitted successful applications in the highly competitive program.

Congratulations to the following successful projects, and thank you to the NSW Government for your support of our clubs, communities and code.
