The Robertson community will benefit from $142,700 in funding support under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Goulburn, Wendy Tuckerman announced today.
Mrs Tuckerman said the funding would help support the Robertson-Burrawang Rovers Soccer Club to install new change rooms and referee’s amenities, as well as refurbishment of the CTC@Robertson building.
“$129,000 will contribute to a Robertson-Burrawang Rovers Soccer Club project to install new change rooms and referee’s amenities. The club will also install a new canteen.
“These improvements will not only provide privacy and security for match officials but will also mean additional storage and better access to the facilities for people with disability.
“CTC@Robertson building will also receive $13,700 to undergo significant refurbishments to ensure it remains a comfortable, attractive and safe hub for the community.
“This building is used for various purposes by members of the Robertson community and visitors. The refurbishment project will replace worn and stained flooring to help create an inviting and warm atmosphere for the community”, Mrs Tuckerman said.
Thirty-two community organisations in NSW have been awarded a total of $4 million, to fund local projects that build or upgrade facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and essential community infrastructure.
Mrs Tuckerman said the Infrastructure Grants program funds important projects across the state and the NSW Government is proud to support community organisations that work tirelessly to create resilient, healthy and connected communities.
“The projects they’re delivering will boost participation in sport, recreation and arts, social inclusion and disaster resilience – making a real difference in people’s lives across NSW,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
Since 2013, the NSW Government has funded over 350 community projects worth $82 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
This year the program expanded to fund projects that build community connections by supporting drought-affected communities and youth, mental health and domestic violence services.
The grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community infrastructure projects across three key areas:
- Arts & Culture
- Disaster Readiness & Community Infrastructure
- Sport & Recreation
