Local Community Groups Invited To Apply For NSW Government Infrastructure Grants


Community organisations across our region can now apply for the next round of funding for local projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Bega, Andrew Constance said today.

Mr Constance said Infrastructure Grants support new or upgraded community facilities across arts and culture, emergency preparedness, and sport and recreation.

“We have seen projects funded for Emergency Evacuation facilities, local RFS stations, Community Hall Kitchens, Marine Rescue and local sporting facilities upgrades.

“I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our communities,” Mr Constance said.

“The grants are funded through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.

“These projects bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency.”

Minister for Racing Paul Toole said $50 million in Infrastructure Grants is being provided to communities across NSW in the current term of government.

“Recent improvements to the program have created more chances to apply for funding and encouraged more diverse projects,” Mr Toole said.

Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants open today, 1 May until 21 May.
