Albury ClubGRANTS

Provides eligible Category 1 organisations, with funding for community projects.


The ClubGRANTS Scheme is a community development grants program funded by local clubs and administered by Albury City.

The scheme is designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of frontline services to their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.

The Gaming Machine Tax Act 2001 enables registered clubs with gaming machine profits over $1 million to apply for a tax rebate (of up to 1.85%). The tax rebate is used to provide grants to not-for-profit community organisations for community projects.

AlburyCity does not financially contribute to the program but assists the local ClubGRANTS Committee by administering the application process.

Local Clubs that are members of the ClubGRANTS Committee in the Albury Local Government Area (LGA) are:

  • The Commercial Club
  • The SS&A (Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen’s Club)
  • The Thurgoona Country Club Resort

Additional members of the Albury ClubGRANTS Committee are:

  • a representative from the NSW  Department of Communities and Justice
  • a representative from a community organisation
  • an AlburyCity Councillor (non-voting rights)
  • an AlburyCity Council Officer (administrative function)
