How are ClubGRANTS applications assessed?

All applications are assessed and funded on the recommendations made by the Blacktown City ClubGRANTS Local Committee. The committee comprises representatives from local Aboriginal communities, Department of Family and Community Services, Western Sydney Area Health Services and Community Resource Network.

*The ClubGRANTS scheme enables registered clubs with gaming machine profits over $1 million to apply for a tax rebate (of 2.25%). The rebate is used to provide grants to nonproft community organisations / services or community projects. The scheme is guided by the Gaming Machine Tax Act 2001.
