COMMUNITY GRANTS OPEN FOR CENTRAL COAST AND HUNTER
6th Sep 2018

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 Central Coast and the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness.

“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.

“Some recent projects include a new fit out of Lake Macquarie Marine Rescue’s radio base at Swansea Heads and the development of the Visitor Information Centre at Hunter Wetlands.”

“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.  

Applications for the current round of Infrastructure Grants are currently open from until 24th September.
