The SCIF category of the ACIF aims to deliver on the strategic priorities of Australian Cricket through the support of key facility projects. 

Projects submitted to the Strategic Cricket Infrastructure Funding category will:

  • Provide benefits to the cricket community
  • Contribute to increasing participation across a broader area or region
  • Involve multiple stakeholders and contributors
  • Deliver outcomes against Australian Cricket’s strategic priorities (e.g. leading sport for women and girls, create the best experiences to grow junior cricket etc.)

The project can relate to any aspect of the facility, with multi-faceted projects that incorporate the addition and/or upgrade of multiple components within a facility being highly regarded.
