Supporting national sporting organisations (NSOs) and national sporting organisations for people with disability (NSODs), to enhance the integrity capability of their organisation.
The National Integrity Capability Enhancement Program (the Program) is aimed at supporting NSOs and NSODs, recognised by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), to increase their sports integrity capability by embedding the National Integrity Framework (the Framework) at all levels of their sport. This will be facilitated through the provision of funding to high-priority NSO/NSODs to support the capability of the NSO/NSODs and their National Integrity Managers.
The ASC will administer the Program, in consultation with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA), to provide support to NSO/NSODs to enhance integrity capabilities and implement and embed the National Integrity Framework. SIA will also provide support to NSO/NSODs through the Integrity Manager Network, along with a suite of resources including policy fact sheets, eLearning courses, staff information packs, training courses and promotional materials.
The Program is available to support those NSO/NSODs funded through the 2022-23 National Integrity Manager grant program, and is also open for additional NSO/NSODs to apply to receive funding.

To be eligible to be considered for funding under the Program, an organisation must:

- have adopted or committed to adopt the National Integrity Framework issued by SIA

Grant funding opportunity
Funding is available to enhance NSO/NSODs’ integrity capability and will be managed via two streams.
NSO/NSODs will be expected to enhance their integrity capability to assist with the adoption and implementation of the Framework. NSO/NSODs are also expected to ensure the role of the National Integrity Manager is established or maintained within their organisation, with responsibility for implementing the Framework and educating participants at all levels on the Framework policies.
Eligible NSO/NSODs funded through the National Integrity Manager grant program in 2022–23 may apply to receive funding in this stream. Existing arrangements between NSO/NSODs that share an Integrity Manager will continue unless the NSOs can demonstrate the need to vary the arrangement. Funding will be provided to further enhance the integrity capability within these organisations for the 2023–24 period with maximum grants available of $120,000 (excl GST). A funding pool of approximately $1.67 million is available for this stream of funding.
Eligible NSO/NSODs not previously funded through the National Integrity Manager grant program in 2022–23 may apply to receive funding in this stream. Eligible organisations may apply for funding up to a maximum of $120,000 (excl GST) to be used to assist in building the NSO/NSOD’s integrity capability and implementation of the National Integrity Framework. A funding pool of $0.33 million is available for this stream.
