Sport Surfaces and Sewerage Stimulus Package

A number of peak sporting organisations and sporting clubs are required to contribute directly to, or meet the full cost of water to keep turf playing surfaces in suitable playing condition. In addition there can be fixed costs for sewerage that some organisations are required to meet.

One-off funding applications were invited from sporting organisation’s that are directly accountable for the payment of costs associated with the watering of turf ovals/fields and/or payment of fixed sewerage costs.

The SSS Stimulus Package was to support the following key objectives:

  • Objective 1: Offsetting water costs associated with watering sport turf surfaces (i.e. ovals and fields), excluding general building water costs; and/or
  • Objective 2: Offsetting fixed sewerage costs associated with a sporting facility.

Funding of up to $20,000 was available per organisation in total.

Funding could be applied for offsetting:

  • Fixed sewerage costs for the period of 1 April 2020 to 31 August 2020; and/or
  • Water costs associated with the watering of sport turf surfaces, excluding general building water costs (e.g. showers and toilets).
