Got a great recreation idea?
Marrickville Council's Recreation Grants Program provides financial support to community sporting and recreation groups, and not-for-profit, non-government community recreation organisations that offer recreation programs and services to residents in the Marrickville local government area (LGA).
Applications must be for specific projects for one-off funding. Funding is available for projects from $500 to $3000. Council reserves the right to determine the level of funding offered.
Young People’s Recreation Needs
Council is researching the recreation needs of young people to plan effectively for future facilities and services.
