Tweed community groups and sports clubs should consider applying for funding in the latest round of the NSW Nationals in Government’s Clubgrants program, according to Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest.

“Most Tweed volunteer organisations have had their normal fund raising activities restricted because of Covid-19, so this is a great opportunity to make up the shortfall,” Mr Provest said.

“The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program is funded from poker-machine tax revenue and has made numerous local projects a reality.”

Clubgrants are designed to give community organisations a boost when and where it’s needed most – it is available for projects to build, repair or upgrade facilities across arts and culture, sport and recreation, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.

Community infrastructure is now a standalone category and funding can be sought for spaces like halls and meeting rooms, community transport, and infrastructure that supports youth, disability, mental health, homelessness, and domestic violence services.
