NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is encouraging community organisations across the region looking to build new or upgrade current facilities to apply for funding from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Mr Marshall said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency preparedness until next Monday, 24 September 2018.
“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 Marshall said.
“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 open and close on 24 September.
