Local organisations in the Goulburn electorate can now apply for funding to support local community projects thanks to the NSW Liberal Governments Clubgrants program, Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said today.
Mrs Tuckerman said Clubgrants allow local community groups to build or upgrade community facilities and a new round is now open, with applications welcome from not-for-profit organisations.
“$12.5 million is available this year for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“This is an opportunity for local organisations to apply for funding for projects that will provide long-term benefits to the community.
“Infrastructure Grants can fund construction, alteration, renovation, completion and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure.
“Projects funded may include new or upgraded sports grounds, museums, theatres, homeless shelters and evacuation centres.”
Mrs Tuckerman said the grants are about about connecting the community, fostering participation in sport, recreation and arts, and boosting social inclusion and disaster resilience.
Since 2015, the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government have funded more than 520 community projects worth $81 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
These grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in four key areas:
- Arts & Culture
- Community Infrastructure
- Disaster Readiness
- Sport & Recreation
Flood affected communities will be prioritised in funding decisions for this round, in line with priorities for disaster affected communities.
Applications for the first round of funding for 2022/23 are open until 18 July. To find out more information or to apply, please visit nsw.gov.au/grants-and-funding/clubgrants-infrastructure
