The Community Sport and Recreation Facility Fund (CSRFF) is managed by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to provide funding to community groups and local governments to develop infrastructure for sport and recreation.

The aim is to increase participation by helping develop new or upgraded facilities and sporting infrastructure that will maintain or increase physical activity, or result in a more rational use of facilities.

Priority will be given to projects that lead to facility sharing and rationalisation, new playing surfaces, floodlighting, change rooms and storage.

The CSRFF contribution is dependant on the scale of the project. 

See the CSRFF guidelines.

There are two levels of funding based on the project value.
