Coffs Coast organisations can apply for funding to support community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said the impacts of COVID-19 are being widely felt and support for struggling community organisations will remain a priority for this latest round.
“As much as $12.5 million is available statewide in 2021-22 for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure,” Mr Singh said.
“This is an opportunity for our local organisations to apply for funding for projects that will provide long-term benefits to the community.
“Infrastructure Grants can fund construction, alteration, renovation, completion and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure.
“Projects funded may include new or upgraded sports grounds, museums, theatres, homeless shelters and evacuation centres.
“This is about connecting the community, fostering participation in sport, recreation and arts, and boosting social inclusion and disaster resilience.”
Since 2015, the NSW Government has funded more than 441 community projects worth $73 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
These grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects.
