The 2021-22 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund
Bioscapes Group is excited to announce applications for the 2021–22 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund (LSIF) are now open! Whether it’s helping community sport through the pandemic or making facilities more accessible, the Victorian Government is committed to supporting communities and sporting clubs. In particular the Victorian Government focuses on upgrading or building new community sport and active recreation infrastructure to ensure more Victorians can secure the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation. The LSIF is a great initiative by the government that helps sporting clubs improve their facilities so that they can provide high-quality services to their customers.
Better facilities allow clubs to take on more players, host more events and draw bigger crowds, creating a real buzz in the community and boosting local economies which is what drives us as a company; “bringing communities and families together”.
This year’s Local Sports Infrastructure Fund
This time around, the Local Sports Infrastructure Fund will provide successful applicants or facilities up to $27 million that fund the development of high-quality, accessible community sport and active recreation infrastructure. The LSIF will invest in projects through five funding streams including indoor stadiums & aquatics facilities, female-friendly facilities, community sports lighting, community facilities, and planning.
