MORE GRANT FUNDING TO COMMUNITY GROUPS
Written on the 23 July 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities are encouraged to apply for funding from the NSW Government's Infrastructure Grants program which opens for applications on Monday, 5 August 2019.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness until Monday 26 August.
"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 Conolly said.
The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs' gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.
Since 2013, the NSW Government has funded over 320 community projects worth $78 million. This year we will commit $12.5 million to support projects that will promote healthy lifestyles, enrich arts and cultural assets and assist communities to prepare for local emergency situations.
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 from 5 to 26 August.
