The ACT Government established the Diversification and Sustainability Support Fund in 2019 to provide funding for activities and initiatives that seek to achieve the following purposes:
- assisting clubs to diversify their income to sources other than gaming machines;
- supporting the sustainability of clubs;
- contributing to projects that help reduce regulatory costs or improve efficiency in administration and compliance for clubs; and
- training and skills development for club workers, executives and members of club management committees and boards.
Applications are considered by the Diversification and Sustainability Support Fund Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to the Minister for Gaming on payments from the Fund.
This Fund is administered through the Justice and Community Services (JACS) Directorate. More information on this Fund, including how to apply, can be found on the JACS website.
