Community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities are encouraged to apply for funding from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Member for Bega Andrew Constance said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness until 24 September.
“This funding can make a real difference to the local community, either by providing new or improved sporting or cultural facilities, or by protecting local residents in emergency situations,” Mr Constance said.
I would encourage any local groups that fit the categories to apply for funding and upgrade or build new facilities that service our community.
“This year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.”
The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.
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 current round of Infrastructure Grants are open now until 24 September.
My office is always ready to assist community groups in locating suitable grant opportunities, so don’t hesitate to call and discuss your next project idea.
