Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies announced $14,932,083 would be allocated in Annual and Forward Planning Grants in the latest round of the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).

"The grants cover projects like installing floodlighting on ovals, upgrading bowling greens, extending existing sporting ovals, building sports pavilions and resurfacing a track," Ms Davies said.

"These projects will have a direct benefit to participation in community and grassroots sport and recreation. We know that when people are active, not only does it benefit their physical health, but it benefits their mental health too and helps keep them connected to the community.

"This is a highly valuable grants program because providing sporting facilities all across WA encourages people of all ages and abilities to be active."

Through CSRFF, the State Government has made $20 million available each year towards sport and recreation facilities across the State through two rounds of Small Grants (up to $200,000 in total project cost); and one round of Annual and Forward Planning Grants (from $200,001 in total project cost).

Some of the aquatic facilities that have been successful in this round are:

  • Shire of Boyup Brook Installation of a new heating system at Boyup Brook Swimming Pool $100,000
  • Shire of Broome Refurbishment of the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre including the pool, wet deck tiling and plant room $1,250,000
