Local councils, not-for-profit organisations and Local Aboriginal Land Councils can apply for funds to support creative cultural infrastructure projects, said Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh.

The funding is part of the NSW Government’s $72 million Creative Capital program. Minor Works and Equipment grants are available for minor capital works projects, master-planning and equipment including systems for recording, broadcast and digitisation.

“Creative infrastructure funding will support new and improved facilities on the Coffs Coast and allow local organisations to purchase essential equipment so artists can create and present their vibrant work,” Mr Singh said.

“I encourage our local community to take advantage of this targeted cultural infrastructure funding and apply with their ideas that will benefit our region for years to come.

“This funding is an excellent opportunity to develop and upgrade our cultural facilities, and I urge everyone to put their ideas forward.”

Applications close at noon on Monday 8 August, with grants of $5000 to $250,000 available.
