This includes $137,000 for the Town of Victoria Park to upgrade floodlighting at Raphael Park.
Liberal member for South Metropolitan Region, Hon Nick Goiran MLC made the announcement today, saying the State Government grants allowed recipients to undertake projects which they might not otherwise be able to afford.
“Offered annually, the grants for projects costing more than $150,000 are designed to contribute to the construction or improvement of grassroots sporting and recreation facilities across Western Australia,” Nick Goiran said.
“By providing the Town of Victoria Park with this funding, the State Government is helping to encourage the community to become more active and providing much needed upgrades to the town of Victoria Park.”
“We also know that being involved in sport at a grass roots level not only brings the community together but it can foster team work, improve mental and physical health as well as lowering crime and truancy.”
Grants in this round will go towards projects like aquatic centre and pool upgrades, construction of a water park, upgrade of a skate park, converting bowling greens from grass to synthetic turf and the installation of floodlighting.
Mr Goiran said half the funding for the CSRFF program was now provided through Royalties for Regions.
Twelve of the successful projects (49.9% of the funding) are in the Perth metropolitan area and 16 projects are in regional WA (50.1% of funding).
