Sport and Recreation Capital Works Program

The aim of the City of Mount Gambier Sport and Recreation Capital Works Program is to foster and assist in the development and/or capital renewal of sport and recreation infrastructure within the city.

The City of Mount Gambier has opened applications for the 2022/2023 Sport and Recreation Major Capital Works Program. The guidelines and application form can be accessed below.

Applications may be lodged at the Council Office, Civic Centre, 10 Watson Terrace, posted to PO Box 56, Mount Gambier SA 5290 or emailed to but must be received no later than 5:00pm on Friday, 16 September 2022.

As a general rule, applications should be for projects with a minimum total cost of $10,000 and a maximum total cost of $50,000. Preference will be given to applications that demonstrate a high incidence of self help as evidenced by matching funds or significant in-kind contributions by the organisation.

The applicant's contributions for this purpose may include cash from the organisation's own resources, grants or funds from sponsors or other sources or in-kind support in the form of labour or services. If the applicant's contribution includes a grant from another source, the applicant must provide evidence that the grant has been awarded or confirmed with an application under this program.

Please refer to the program guidelines for further information, including:

  • Types of projects eligible for funding under the program,
