MANLY COMMUNITY GROUPS INVITED TO APPLY FOR NSW GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS

Member for Manly, James Griffin, is encouraging local organisations in Manly to apply for funding to support critical community infrastructure in Manly, made possible under the NSW Government’s Clubgrants Category 3 Infrastructure Grants which re-invest profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects.

Mr Griffin said the $12.75 million annual program supports the costs of construction, alteration, renovation, completion and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure across the following categories:

  • Arts & Culture: $50,000 to $200,000 available per project
  • Community Infrastructure: $50,000 to $250,000 available per project
  • Disaster Readiness: $50,000 to $200,000 available per project
  • Sport & Recreation: $50,000 to $300,000 available per project

“This is a great chance for local organisations to seek funding for a project to provide long-term, tangible benefits to the community,” Mr Griffin said.

“The types of projects funded in the past include new or upgraded sports grounds, museums, theatres, homeless shelters and evacuation centres.”

Mr Griffin said, “These projects are all about creating resilient, healthy and connected communities, promoting participation in sport, recreation and arts, and boosting social inclusion and disaster resilience.”

Since 2015, the NSW Government has funded more than 560 community projects worth $85 million under the Infrastructure Grants Program.

Applications are now open and will close at 11:59pm (AEST) on Monday 22 July.
