Local community organisations can now apply for the next round of funding for local projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams said today.
Infrastructure Grants support new or upgraded community facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency preparedness.
“I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our local community,” Mrs Williams said.
“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.
“During this term of government, $50 million in Infrastructure Grants is being provided to communities across NSW.”
Mrs Williams said the funding comes from the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.
“Recent improvements to the program have created more chances to apply for funding and encouraged more diverse projects.
“Instead of one round of funding each year, there are now four rounds, while a streamlined application process has cut red tape and led to faster assessment,” Mrs Williams.
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 20 November 2017.
