CLUBGRANTS CATEGORY 3 PROGRAM NOW OPEN
Written on the 25 August 2015 by Kevin ConollyKevin Conolly MP, Member for Riverstone is encouraging local organisations to apply for grants of up to $1 million to help upgrade sport and recreation facilities through the ClubGRANTS Category 3 program.
"Sport and recreation is part of our State's social fabric and the NSW Government is investing in facilities for the community to enjoy for generations to come," Mr Conolly said.
"There's up to $8 million available and I encourage our local clubs and council to get their applications together to have the best chance of receiving a funding injection.
"Particular emphasis will be placed on projects that benefit disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this program round.
"On top of funding for sport and recreation infrastructure, $2 million for emergency relief facilities and $2.5 million for cultural infrastructure annually for the next four years is available through separate rounds opening in the coming months."
Expressions of interest for sport and recreation grants are now open until October 2015. Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS Fund committee made up of representatives from Sport NSW, Clubs NSW, Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing, Arts NSW, Office of Regional Development and sporting associations.
Approved applicants will be invited to lodge formal applications by 16 December 2015 and successful projects will be announced early next year.
Further information and applicant information packs are available on the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing website www.olgr.nsw.gov.au
