GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL SPORT AND RECREATION PROJECTS
Written on the 22 August 2016 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Mr Kevin Conolly MP, is inviting local community groups, sports clubs and councils to apply for grants between $500,000 and $1 million for new or upgraded sport and recreation infrastructure projects dollars to help them deliver an important sports infrastructure project for their communities.
Mr Conolly said these grants are being made available under the NSW Government's 2016/17 ClubGRANTS program for projects providing modern and safe community facilities for people to take part in sport and recreation and improve fitness and well-being.
"I encourage all eligible groups to consider submitting an application for a project that will make a real difference to the community in the Riverstone Electorate" Mr Conolly said.
Particular emphasis will be placed on projects that benefit disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this program round.
"Over this term of government, around $50 million in ClubGRANTS will be provided to local communities across NSW to support three categories of infrastructure: sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency relief facilities" said Mr Conolly.
Deputy Premier Troy Grant said sport and sports clubs are a crucial part of any community and the NSW Government is proud to be able help improve facilities that are relied upon by so many.
"Sport and recreation is part of our state's social fabric and the NSW Government is committed to investing in facilities for our communities to enjoy for generations to come," Mr Grant said.
An applicant information pack is now available on the Liquor & Gaming NSW website www.liquorandgaming.justice.nsw.gov.au with expressions of interest now open and closing on Friday 23 September 2016.
Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS fund committee and approved applicants will then be invited to lodge formal applications. Successful projects will be announced in 2017.
