The NSW Government is investing in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion and Canowindra community organisations are encouraged to apply. More than $334 million has been awarded to over 15,000 projects through the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program since 2009.
In 2020, there is a maximum of $300,000 to allocate in each electorate in NSW. 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.
Eligible projects will be assessed against four equally weighted program criteria:
1. Enhancing facilities: the project develops a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive community through the enhancement or construction of community infrastructure.
2. Meeting community needs: the project supports activities and services needed by local communities.
3. Increasing community participation: the project encourages participation in activities or services needed by a broad section of the community.
4. The organisation’s capacity: the applicant has the capacity to deliver the project on time and within scope.
