COMMUNITY GROUPS ENCOURAGED TO APPLY TO UPGRADE INFRASTRUCTURE
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has called on local sport and recreation groups to apply for the latest round of the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program.
Mr Anderson said the program provided organisations to apply for funding of between $50,000 and $250,000 to cover the cost of construction, alteration, renovation, completion, and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure that benefits regional communities.
“The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program provides local organisations with a fantastic opportunity to upgrade facilities that will provide long-term tangible benefits to the community,” Mr Anderson said.
“In past years, we’ve seen projects as varied as the Quirindi Silo Art, Tamworth Golf Club cart paths, East Tamworth Tennis Club upgrades, and Manilla Showground upgrades funded under this program.
“I want to see more, which is why I’m calling on community organisations to get their applications together as soon as possible.
“The current round of funding will prioritise projects which deliver outcomes for disadvantaged NSW communities, including regional, remote and drought and disaster affected areas, culturally and linguistically diverse, disability, and Aboriginal communities.
“I know that this fund has had a positive impact on communities in our electorate and I’m excited to see what new opportunities will arise in round 4 of the fund.
The current round of funding opened on 31st July and closes on 21st August 2023.
