All electorates have $300,000 each to share as community grants

Applications are now open for funding under the 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.

All electorates in NSW will receive $300,000 each as part of the State Government’s $27.9M program for community infrastructure projects.

Wyong MP, David Harris, is encouraging not-for-profit groups and local councils to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“Local sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” he said.

“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.

“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places where you meet, train or play.

“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $300,000.”

Applications close at 5pm on Friday, May 14, and more information is available at the local electorate offices of Wyong MP, David Harris; The Entrance MP, David Mehan and Swansea MP, Yasmin Catley.

Harris said applicants must read the program guidelines, available online, to ensure that their club or organisation and the proposed project is eligible.

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $362M to more than 16,600 projects across NSW since it commenced in 2009.
