Providing support and assistance to take international, national and approved state sport league competitions and contests to regional Western Australia.
The Country Sport Enrichment (CSES) scheme provides support to organisations to deliver high level events or competitions or provide access to sport development opportunities for regional Western Australia.
Projects are not to commence before approval has been granted by DLGSC. No retrospective funding will be considered.
Maximum level of funding is $30,000 per application per financial year. This will be based on the costs associated with the Community Activation Plan or hosting the event in a regional area.
If your application is successful, you will need to finalise a Community Activation Plan with DLGSC and supply any relevant supporting documentation (i.e., quotes, detailed project proposals.
There will be one funding round each financial year.
Projects must commence between 1 October 2021 and 30 June 2022.
The dates identified above are indicative to allow DLGSC to manage the funding available and assess the priority of applications across WA.
Out of round applications may be considered if a significant event becomes available. Applications must be submitted to DLGSC a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the proposed event commencing.
An assessment will be made to determine if the application is eligible by assessing it against the grant criteria. If approved, a grant agreement will be entered into which outlines the grant conditions and acquittal requirements. Once signed and returned, the grant will be paid directly to the applicant body (organisation or association). No grant monies will be paid directly to an individual. The applicant body will be responsible for the acquittal of the grant and will be responsible to forward any approved funding to individuals as deemed necessary.
At the completion of the project, the applicant body will need to complete the acquittal documentation, acquittal statement and key results schedule, within 30 days and forward to DLGSC to demonstrate that the funds have been spent in accordance with the outlined grant agreement. Failure to comply with these requirements may jeopardise future funding from DLGSC.
