How to Apply

Funding Categories


The new ClubGRANTS Guidelines are now available. Applicants should read the new Guidelines to determine whether they are eligible for Club GRANTS funding. There are two funding categories under the ClubGRANTS Scheme:

CATEGORY 1 expenditure on specific community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities; and

CATEGORY 2 expenditure on other community development and support services (eg traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups).

ClubGRANTS Guidelines


CATEGORY 1 – funding requires a detailed application process and we suggest you refer to resources available from the ClubsNSW website to assist you in completing your submission. Dubbo RSL Memorial Club, West Dubbo Bowling Club, Dubbo Railway Bowling Club in conjunction with Dubbo City Council and Department of Community Services are involved in the process of determining funding applications each year. Funding applications are to be submitted directly to Council.

CATEGORY 2 – funding applications are relatively simple where submissions are sent directly to the club you are seeking support from. In summary the process at Dubbo RSL Memorial Club is as follows:

  • You make an application providing a one page document on your Club’s letterhead briefly outlining your history, purpose and office bearers, requesting support for your sport or recreation activity and send it to Dubbo RSL Memorial Club.
  • Upon receipt of your submission it is tabled at the next monthly meeting of the board of directors of the Dubbo RSL Memorial Club.
  • The information disclosed in the submission is discussed at the monthly meeting by the board of directors.
  • A determination will be made by way of a motion and a vote by the directors.
  • Return correspondence will follow advising of the outcome of your request.
