• Sport & Recreation ($100,000 to $300,000 available per project)

“This funding can make a real difference and I encourage local community organisations to apply,” Mr Provest said.

“The 2019/20 program and has been expanded to support projects that build community connections and the application process has been streamlined to make it easier and quicker.

“For the first time, the grants are available for projects that support youth, mental health, homelessness and domestic violence services as well as drought-affected communities.”

Mr Provest said that since 2013 the NSW Government had funded more than 320 community projects worth $78 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.

The grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from gaming machines into community projects.
