Active State Collaboration Program (ASCP)

Eligible organisations can now apply for funding through the Active State Collaboration Program (ASCP).

ASCP is a new grant program looking to drive sport and recreation initiatives, through funding that rewards organisations partnering to develop and deliver projects to get more South Australians active.

The program will support projects that align with the Government’s priorities and the ORSR 2021–2025 Strategic Plan that provides everyone with an opportunity to participate in sport and active recreation.

Applicants will be required to demonstrate how their project will contribute to one or more of the following strategic priorities:

  • Active Lives – Movement, play and performances is embedded into the daily lives of South Australians.
  • Places and Spaces – Places and spaces that encourage and support movement, play and performance are accessible to all. (Please note this is in relation to addressing activation, accessibility, and programming – infrastructure development projects are ineligible).
  • Strategic Partnerships – Community outcomes are delivered through strategic partnerships.

With over $2.6 million on offer, the funding is available to not-for-profit organisations that have been operating for at least 12 months and local councils.

Applicants may request up to $500,000 per project and will be required to have a level of co-investment, which will form part of the assessment.

Please read the Program Guidelines prior to submitting an application.

Applications close midday on Friday 30 September 2022.
