Community organisations can now apply for the next round of funding for projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen said the grants support new or upgraded community facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency preparedness.
“These projects bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency,” said Johnsen said.
“The funding comes from the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables our local registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.
“Recent improvements to the program have created more chances to apply for funding and encouraged more diverse projects.
“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, so I would strongly encourage our community to apply for this funding.
“Instead of one round of funding each year, there are now four rounds,” he said.
Applications for the next round of infrastructure grants are open from February 1 to 19.
