Applications are now open for the 2020 Community Building Partnership Program, which will see $27.9 million in funding for community infrastructure projects across NSW.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said $300,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including the Goulburn electorate, which includes Boorowa and urged local not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes. “Local sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply,” said Mrs Tuckerman.
Since it commenced it 2009, the Community Building Partnership Program has awarded 15,000 community projects more than $330 million in funding.
“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $300,000.”
Applications opened on Monday the 4th of May, 2020 and will close at 5pm on Friday the 12th of June, 2020.
Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
