LOCAL GROUPS INVITED TO APPLY FOR COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS

Monday, 23 April 2018

 COMMUNITY organisations and sporting groups across the Northern Tablelands will soon be able to apply for the next round of funding for local projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, local State MP Adam Marshall announced today.

 

Mr Marshall said the grants – up to $300,000 per project – would support new or upgraded community facilities across arts and culture, emergency preparedness and sport and recreation.

 

“I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our local communities,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“The criteria are quite broad within the three streams, so start thinking about a project and get planning right now.”

 

Mr Marshall said Armidale’s New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) was a recipient of $95,000 in the last round of the program, along with Ashford Bowling Club, Inverell Shire Council and Moree Boomerangs Rugby League Club, in previous rounds.

 

“Local projects that bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency are all encouraged,” he said.

 

“The funding available ranges from $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture projects, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.

 

“The grants are funded through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.

 

“I know there are many organisations across our region with ideas that would suit this fund, so please don’t miss out on this opportunity for funding.”

 

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants are open from 1 to 21 May 2018. For more information, including details on how to apply for the grants, visit www.responsiblegambling.nsw.gov.au/infrastructure-grants
