Community Support Fund
The Community Support Fund (CSF) was established by the Victorian Government to direct a portion of gaming revenue back to the community.
Taxes on gaming machines in Victorian hotels contribute more than $100 million each year to the Fund.
Funds from the Community Support Fund support a range of programs, which in turn support a wide variety of projects in the community.

This website provides details of all CSF grants approved during the 2011-12 financial year. Information will be updated annually.
It should be noted that while many of the grants listed benefit specific communities, many programs run across several locations or State-wide, therefore any attempt to calculate investment by location will be a significant underestimation.
Investments from the CSF are made based on community need rather than being matched to gaming expenditure in any given area.
The 2013-14 Budget papers are now available on the Budget website.
Future direction for public private partnerships
