The Everyone Can Play (ECP) Grant Program is a commitment by the NSW Government to support councils in creating new and upgrading existing playspaces across NSW to ensure people of all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds can play. This program ensures inclusive playspaces are delivered for our communities.
The 2019-20 Grant Program is providing funding to assist councils to create new inclusive playspaces or upgrade to existing playspaces to improve inclusion. Funds are awarded to councils on a matched dollar for dollar basis.
In March 2020, $4 million of funding was allocated across 37 playspace projects in 30 councils.
In metropolitan Sydney, 2019/20 funding will help create nine new inclusive playspaces and upgrade a further eight playspaces to make them more inclusive. In regional NSW, the new funding will help create nine new inclusive playspaces and upgrade a further 11 playspaces.
