GOVERNMENT’S POPULAR INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS PROGRAM RE-OPENS
Organisations from across the Tamworth electorate are being encouraged to apply for the NSW Government’s popular Infrastructure Grants Program.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the program had already funded worthy projects from across the region including the Quirindi Silo Art project, shade sails at Tamworth Little Athletics Club, and water tanks at Yarrowich Public Hall and Recreation Reserve.
“The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program invests in the projects that matter for communities in regional NSW,” Mr Anderson said.
“This is a great opportunity for local organisations to tap into the $12.5 million program, particularly those organisations who have been through difficult time with the floods.
Mr Anderson added that Infrastructure Grants can fund construction, alteration, renovation, completion and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure.
“Successful previous applications from across the state include sports grounds, museums, theatres, homeless shelters, and evacuation centres,” Mr Anderson added.
“They’re projects that build the resilience of regional communities, helping them bounce back from natural disasters and ensuring they’re well set up for the future.”
Since 2015, the NSW Government has funded more than 560 community projects worth $85 million under the Infrastructure Grants Program.
“Funding under the program is made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects.”
The current round of funding closes on Monday 31 October. For more details visit www.nsw.gov.au/grants-and-funding/responsible-gambling-grants
