$300,000 IN GRANTS AVAILABLE TO KICKSTART COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS IN THE MANLY ELECTORATE
Applications are now open for the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program, with grants available to help make Manly a better place to live, work, learn and play.
The program invests in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
Member for Manly, James Griffin MP said: “I strongly encourage local organisations to apply for this much-loved program.”
“This funding is a direct investment into the Manly community and supports much-needed upgrades to our local community spaces and facilities.
“I know there are fantastic ideas out there that could use this funding to make a difference in the community. I urge people to make the most of this opportunity to get your project off the ground and into the world.” Mr Griffin said.
Since 2009, the program has awarded more than $436 million to more than 19,700 projects across the state, from access ramps for community halls to resurfacing the local sporting grounds.
Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000.
In 2023, grants must be for building, refurbishing, or repairing community infrastructure, or for buying freestanding equipment or vehicles.
Grant applications close Friday, 27 October 2023 at 5pm.
