NSW infrastructure funding now available through the Community Building Partnership program

Member for Albury, Greg Aplin has announced that applications for funding through the 2017 Community Building Partnership program open today, Monday, 26 June.

 The NSW Government is again committing funds to new infrastructure-based projects that meet a need in the local community.

 "These grants are open to local councils and incorporated not-for-profits such as charities, sporting, social and service groups that are looking to build or refurbish essential facilities for their community,” Mr Aplin said.

"In previous years, the program has helped local government, clubs and associations deliver new infrastructure for preschools and community groups, and helped pay for much-needed improvements to local sports facilities, parks and halls. This is grassroots funding which directly benefits communities.”

Grant applications must have a minimum value of $2,500 to be eligible for funding under the program.

“If your organisation needs funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities that deliver positive social, recreational, inclusive and environmental outcomes for the community, I encourage you to apply,” Mr Aplin said.

“There is a high demand for funds through the program, so please ensure you take the required time and care in preparing your application against the assessment criteria.”

Applications for funding open on Monday 26 June and close on Wednesday 9 August 2017.

 For information on who can apply, what projects are eligible for funding and how to apply, please visit
