COMMUNITY GROUPS INVITED TO APPLY FOR NSW GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS
Written on the 4 May 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Community organisations can now apply for the next round of funding for local projects under the NSW Government's Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly today.
Mr Conolly said Infrastructure Grants support new or upgraded community facilities across arts and culture, emergency preparedness, and sport and recreation.
"I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our community," Mr Conolly 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" Mr Conolly said.
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 are open until 21 May.
