Applications Open for NSW Government Infrastructure Grants
Community organisations on the Northern Beaches are invited to apply for funding to support local projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Manly James Griffin said today.
Mr Griffin said $12.5 million is available in the 2019/20 program for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.
“I encourage all local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our community,” Mr Griffin said.
“The 2019/20 program and has been expanded to support projects that build community connections and the application process has been streamlined to make it easier and quicker.
“For the first time, the grants are available for projects that support youth, mental health, homelessness and domestic violence services – a reflection of the importance the NSW Government places on these services.”
Mr Griffin said that since 2013, the NSW Government has funded over 320 community projects worth $78 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
The grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in three key areas:
- Arts & Culture
- Disaster Readiness & Community Infrastructure
- Sport & Recreation
Applications for the first round of funding for 2019/20 are open from Monday 5 August to Monday 26 August.
