Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Marise Payne is encouraging locals to provide feedback on sporting facilities in need of an upgrade.
The Turnbull Government has announced the launch of the Community Sport Infrastructure Grants program, which enables sport and community organisations to apply for grants up to $500,000 to upgrade sporting infrastructure.

“Local sporting clubs are at the forefront of helping to build a sense of community and encourage active and healthy lifestyles, and I want to ensure that our clubs have the best possible facilities for players, coaches and volunteers alike,” Senator Payne said.

Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Marise Payne has also launched the Western Sydney Sport Survey to encourage Lindsay residents, sporting clubs and associations to help identify sporting facilities in need of an upgrade.

Senator Payne’s survey was launched online through her website and on social media, and asks respondents to identify sporting clubs in need of an upgrade.

“The Survey is designed to give sporting groups across western Sydney the opportunity to nominate a facility which they think would benefit from an upgrade,” Senator Payne said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for residents and clubs to use their local knowledge, and to help give back to the sporting groups which do so much to connect our community.”

The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity.

Applications will remain open until September 14.
