NSW Boating Now

Applications close midnight on Sunday 20 August 2017.

Applications for funding are now sought under Round 2 of the Program to further improve boating infrastructure across NSW.
Applications are invited from local government, other authorities, community groups and other boating stakeholders for funding assistance to deliver priority recreational infrastructure projects across the state.

Who can apply for NSW Boating Now?

This Program is open to all interested parties, including local government, other authorities, community groups and the stakeholders to submit applications for funding for the delivery of recreational boating infrastructure projects that improve the experience in NSW. Each party can apply for funding for more than one project, however the application forms should note the order in which each project is prioritised.

Types of projects to be funded

Priority consideration will be given to projects identified during the Round 1 assessment process that could not be funded under Round 1 but still have a strong benefit to the boating experience. Transport for NSW will inform relevant delivery partners of projects that fall under this category in their area. Delivery partners will still be required to submit application forms for these priority projects.

Consideration will also be given to new projects and other previously identified projects that that improve infrastructure and the boating.

The Program will consider making funds available to new projects or upgrades to existing facilities such as:
 boat ramps
 public wharves/jetties or pontoons
 public sewage pumpout facilities
 dinghy storage facilities
 recreational boat trailer parking facilities 3
Consideration will also be given to funding:
 minor works directly associated with or facilitating recreational boating facility upgrades such as lighting, access, wash-down facilities and other foreshore improvements
 feasibility and development studies for recreational infrastructure projects including engineering design and approvals.
