Formerly known as Community Development and Support Expenditure (CDSE). Applications for funding under the ClubGRANTS scheme for 2013 are now open and will be accepted up until 5pm on Wednesday 17 April 2013.
Under this scheme, Goulburn and district community organisations could apply for funding towards local community service needs and priorities from the ClubGRANTS scheme.
The ClubGRANTS Committee particularly looked at submissions that related to local projects/interest groups and purchase of equipment/capital up to a value of $2,500.

The Goulburn Workers' Club and Goulburn and District Soldiers' Club both participate in the ClubGRANTS Scheme.
