Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program (SRDRP)
The Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program (SRDRP) supports not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations with funding to re-establish their facilities and activities after extreme natural events, including flooding and associated damage.
The SRDRP program will support not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations with funding to reestablish their facilities after extreme natural events, specifically floods, cyclones and severe storm events.
Funding of up to $5000 (Level 1) and $20,000 (Level 2) is available for eligible sport and recreation organisations located in areas declared under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).
Level 1 funding provides up to $5000 to assist in immediate clean-up efforts. This may include:
- replacement of damaged equipment that directly relates to the re-establishment of activities (including office and canteen equipment)
- payment of services and hire costs, and purchase of equipment and tools that assist in short term clean-up of facilities
- reimbursement for the purchase of the above made from the date of the relevant disaster
- funds to repair or replace when this is lower than the premium excess set by the insurance provider may be eligible
- excess coverage for insurance claims.
Level 2 funding provides up to $20,000 to assist in immediate clean-up efforts. This may include items/works which:
- mitigate the effect of future damage to the sport and recreation infrastructure due to a similar disaster event:
- repair/restore damage to sport and recreation infrastructure that directly relates to the re-establishment of facilities.
- replace damaged items that are not covered by Level 1 assistance to restore operations to support the delivery of sport and recreation activities.
To be eligible, the organisation must:
- be located in an NDRRA Category A-C declared disaster affected area, depending on level of funding requested
- be an incorporated local or regional not-for-profit organisation with a primary objective relating to sport and recreation
- comply with the insurance requirements as outlined in section 4.3 of the guidelines
- demonstrate tenure over the infrastructure and have the legal right to conduct works on the site to request repair, restoration or mitigation support to infrastructure damaged by the declared natural event.
It is recommended that you contact your local Sport and Recreation Services office prior to applying to discuss any enquiries.
