Gurmesh Singh MP


Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said applications are open for the 2022 Community Building Partnership program, unlocking $37.2 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.

Mr Singh said $400,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including Coffs Harbour. He urges local councils and 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,” Mr Singh 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.”

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects since it commenced in 2009.

“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Mr Singh said.

“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $400,000.”

Applications close at 5pm, Friday 10 June 2022. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
