Mandurah sporting groups seeking funding for sporting facility projects can now apply for the latest small grants round of the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) program.

The CSRFF provides $12 million a year to community groups and local governments to develop infrastructure for sport and recreation.

The CSRFF aims to increase participation in sport and recreation by helping build well-designed and well-utilised facilities for grassroots sporting organisations around the state.

Last year, the program allocated more than $3 million to projects that included the provision of change rooms and facilities for women.

The CRSFF small grants round applies for projects that cost between $7500 to $300,000.

Mandurah MP David Templeman said the grants would be a boon for any of the city's local clubs.

"There are so many fantastic local sporting groups in Mandurah and they play an important role in our community," he said.

"These grants present a terrific opportunity to improve sporting facilities in Mandurah.

"By increasing the small grants maximum project cost to $300,000, projects such as floodlighting, irrigation upgrades, and bowling green and tennis court conversions will be able to be considered in this grants round."
