ClubGRANTS Program

Each year, Bathurst Regional Council invites local community organisations to apply for funding under the ClubGRANTS Program.  Participating Clubs in the Bathurst area are:  Panthers and Bathurst RSL Club.

The Program allows registered clubs with annual gaming machine revenue exceeding $1 million to apply a percentage of their gaming machine revenue to community development and support projects.

Projects in the following categories may qualify for Category 1 funding:

  • Community welfare and social services
  • Community development
  • Community health services
  • Employment assistance activities.

Applications for Category 2 funds are made directly to clubs via ClubsNSW Portal.

Applications for Category 1 ClubGRANTS for 2023 will be via ClubsNSW Portal.  Applications close on Friday 31 May 2024.

No applications can be received manually.  Further information and a link to the application process can be accessed here.  If you are using the ClubsNSW portal for the first time, you will need to create a login with a password.

For any organisations who needs to acquit funding from previous allocations, a copy of the Standard Funding Report Form can be accessed below.  All funding must be acquitted and endorsed by the ClubGRANTS Committee to access funding in any future round.
