ANOTHER FUNDING OPPRTUNITY FOR LOCAL ARTS AND CULTURAL FACILITIES

Thursday, 25 February 2016

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands is encouraging local organisations to apply for grants of between $100,000 and $300,000 to help build or upgrade art and cultural facilities through the ClubGRANTS Category 3 program.

Mr Marshall said the NSW Government understood how important art and culture is to local communities and was investing in facilities to boost this vibrant and important sector.

“With $2.5 million on offer I urge our passionate, creative organisations to apply for this funding opportunity to further enhance our community’s art and cultural offerings,” Mr Marshall said.

“On top of funding for art and culture, the ClubGRANTS Category 3 scheme is investing millions in sport and recreation infrastructure and emergency relief facilities annually over the next four years.

“The Northern Tablelands region is renowned for its high quality art and culture and has many wonderful facilities that would benefit greatly from this program.

“The government is committed to ensuring people have access to art and culture no matter where they live – this investment will build participation and ensure our facilities are equipped for the long term.”

Mr Marshall said particular emphasis would be placed on projects that benefited disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this program round.

Expressions of interest for art and culture grants are now open until 18 March 2016.

Approved applicants will be invited to lodge formal applications in May 2016 with successful projects announced later this year.
