Community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities are encouraged to apply for funding from the NSW Liberal National Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness projects from today until Monday 23rd July.
“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 MacDonald said.
“Two recent examples in the Hunter include funding to redevelop the visitor centre at Hunter Wetlands and to redevelop the Swansea Heads Radio Base for Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie.”
“This year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.”
The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.
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.
