Kevin Conolly MP, Member for Riverstone is encouraging local Rugby League Clubs to apply for the NSW Footy Facilities Fund, with applications now open until the 12th August 2015.

Mr Conolly said "The program is a joint initiative of the NRL and the NSW Government, which will help fund grassroots footy clubs."

"The NRL and the NSW Government want to get behind our local footy clubs, and support their work in the community."

The main objectives of the Footy Facilities Fund are to increase regular and ongoing participation opportunities in Rugby League and to improve the standard of grounds and facilities.

  • Additionally, applications can be strengthened by addressing one or more of the following:
  • improving safety at sport and recreation facilities (e.g. providing safer playing field, access pathways for players, disability ramps)
  • increase the security at sport and recreation facilities (e.g. installation of fencing)
  • remove barriers to promote inclusion in Rugby League (e.g. upgrade of amenities to increase female participation, provision of disability access, upgrade of referee amenities)
  • develop environmentally sustainable sport and recreation facilities (e.g. installation of drainage, rainwater tanks, more efficient lighting)
  • building strong communities.

For more information and to apply, visit  or call 13 13 02.
