Centre of Excellence Fund

Date/Deadline: 05 Dec, 2022

The Centre of Excellence Fund aims to improve talent pathways and community engagement for all sporting codes.

The primary objectives of the Fund are to:

  • Provide elite-performance sport infrastructure
  • Support talent identification and development pathways (i.e. athletes moving from pre-elite to elite)
  • Support the enhancement of dedicated female programs and facilities to improve pathways for women and girls, in line with the NSW Government’s women in sport strategy Her Sport Her Way
  • Improve the level of community engagement e.g. an increase in the number of community health and wellbeing education workshops held at a Centre of Excellence

The NSW Government has allocated $150 million to the Centre of Excellence Fund.

Up to $90 million will be available in 2022-2023 (Round 2).

To be considered eligible, the project must be submitted through the Office of Sport SmartyGrants website.

Applications that adopt a partnership approach will be considered favourably. Applicants are encouraged to engage with all levels of government (i.e. federal, state and local), other State and National Sporting Organisations and Sporting Organisations for People with Disability, NSW based professional sporting organisations, and relevant peak sporting bodies in the development of their project.
