LOCAL ORGANISATIONS INVITED TO TAP INTO CLUBGRANTS
Organisations right across the region have been invited to apply for funding to support community projects thanks to the NSW Nationals in Government’s Clubgrants program.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the clubgrants program had been delivering great outcomes for communities in the region and encouraged organisations to get an application in before the 18th of July.
“Clubgrants invests in the projects that matter and I want our community to take advantage of the $12.5 million that is on offer in this round,” Mr Anderson said.
“I know there are some great community infrastructure projects on the radar right across the electorate and this is an opportunity to get them funded and underway.
“Projects funded in the past include shade sails at the athletics facility and water tanks at Yarrowitch Public Hall, projects that have significant benefits for our community.”
Mr Anderson said that funding can also be used for spaces like halls and meeting rooms, lights for sporting grounds, spaces for storing and exhibiting cultural artifacts, community transport, and infrastructure that supports youth, disability, mental health, homelessness, and domestic violence services.
“This program is about investing in our community, connecting us and fostering growth in sport, recreation and the arts, while boosting social inclusion and disaster resilience.”
These grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in four key areas:
• Arts & Culture
• Community Infrastructure
• Disaster Readiness
• Sport & Recreation
Applications for the first round of funding for 2022/23 are open now and close on 18 July. To find out more information or to apply, please visit nsw.gov.au/grants-and-funding/clubgrants-infrastructure
