Local organisations in Tweed can now apply for funding to support local community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest said today.

Mr Provest said the impacts of COVID-19 are still being widely felt and support for struggling community organisations will remain a priority for this latest round.

“$12.5 million is available in 2021/22 for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure Mr Provest said.

“This is an opportunity for 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.

“This is about connecting the community, fostering participation in sport, recreation and arts, and boosting social inclusion and disaster resilience,” Mr Provest said.

These grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in the following areas:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Disaster Readiness
  • Community Infrastructure
  • Sport & Recreation

Applications for the second round of funding for 2019/20 are open from today, Monday 5 July to Monday 26 July. To find out more information or to apply, please visit responsiblegambling.nsw.gov.au
