About the program
The objective of the Active Club Program (ACP) is to provide funding support to active recreation and sport clubs to further develop the programs and services they provide within the community and to support the South Australian Strategic Plan’s sport and recreation target (T83) “to increase the proportion of South Australians participating in sport or physical recreation at least once per week to 50 percent by 2020.”

The budget for 2018/19 ACP is $2,950,000. A notional allocation of $50,000 is available for each of the 47 electorates per year, divided over two funding rounds.

For 2018/19 they are Rounds 45 and 46. $40,000 is notionally available per electorate in Round 45, with $30,000 of the notional amount available for facility applications and the remaining $10,000 available for program and equipment funding. $10,000 per electorate is available this round (Round 45) for program and equipment funding only.
