Following the review of the Adelaide Hills Council Sport and Recreation Strategy, we are refining our approach in how we determine support to our Community in the area of Sport and Recreation. One component of this is via our annual Sport & Recreation Facility Grants.

At the 13 December 2016 Council meeting, it was decided to defer the 2016/2017 financial year Sport & Rec Facility Grants funds and make them available in the 2017/2018 financial year instead.  As a result this 2017/18 grant round will have  'double funding' available, and will be supported by a clearer process and new and improved guidelines to maximise community outcomes.

More information will become available and communicated to clubs in due course, but it is anticipated that new guidelines and funding will be available between approximately July – November 2017.
