The NSW Government is investing in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
More than $300 million has been awarded to over 13,800 projects through the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program since 2009.
In 2019, there is a maximum of $300,000 to allocate in each electorate. Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $2,500 and $300,000. As a guide, the average grant awarded is around $20,000.
“I have had the pleasure of announcing many CBP grants successfully applied for throughout the Orange electorate which benefit many people throughout our communities. I would encourage your club, group or organisation to apply,” said Phil Donato, Member for Orange.
Local councils, including their section 355 committees, are required to provide matched funding to the CBP grants.
Applications are now open and close on 27th September at 5pm.
The announcement of successful projects will take place in late March 2020. For more information visit www.nsw.gov.au/improving-nsw/projects-and-initiatives/community-building-partnership/
