NSW Member for Murray Adrian Piccoli is encouraging local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for funding requests through the 2017 Community Building Partnership program.
Mr Piccoli said CBP grants were available each year for community infrastructure projects that delivered positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
‘‘Through the program, the NSW Government ensures funding is available to support organisations that think first and foremost about the needs of locals,’’ he said.
‘‘Local sports clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that benefit from this program and the grants can pay for much-needed improvements to local facilities that promote participation in the local community.
‘‘If your organisation needs some extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then I encourage you to take the time to carefully prepare your application.’’
The Community Building Partnership program has awarded funding to more than 10000 valuable community projects since it began in 2009.
Applications for funding will close on Monday, August 7.
Before applying, applicants must read the program guidelines to check that both their organisation and proposed project are eligible.
