Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes is encouraging sporting clubs in Pittwater to apply for funds under the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

More than $4.6 million in grants will be allocated across NSW for community sport development and upgrades to local sporting facilities.

The program aims to increase regular and on-going participation in sport and structured physical activity, remove barriers to participation, help sporting clubs provide quality service to their members, and increase the amount of well-managed facilities in local communities.

“Community sport is a big part in the physical and mental wellbeing of many Pittwater residents and it’s fantastic it’s recommenced locally after the recent lockdown,” Rob Stokes said today.

“These grants are a great opportunity for local clubs to apply for a funding boost and I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s projects.”

Applications close at 1pm on Friday 19 November 2019, and further information about the program is available at

The NSW Government has also announced a $25 million Sport and Recreation and Community Rebuild Package to help support the recovery of community sport following the impact of COVID-19. Further information is available at
