Community groups are invited to apply for infrastructure grants from the state government to fund local projects.
Grants of between $100,000 and $300,000 are available for sport and recreation infrastructure.
“I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our local communities,” NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said.
To be eligible for funding, projects must be:
- built entirely in NSW
- accessible and available to the general public the majority of the time
- managed and maintained by an organisation with an ABN.
For those looking to develop a rail trail, be aware that projects must have development approval.
Local government applicants are expected to match funding of the grant provided.
Funding comes from the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.
Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.
The Infrastructure Grants Program is open for this round of applications from 1 to 20 November.
