Community projects needing additional funding support can now apply for the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has encouraged local councils, organisations and community groups to get involved.
“This program has been hugely successful in the Dubbo electorate allowing local groups to undertake a wide range of projects,” Mr Saunders said.
“We’ve seen new food trailers for Orana Support Service and BaptistCare, security upgrades for Mudgee PCYC to go 24/7, and maintenance equipment to help local sporting clubs – just to name a few!
“This investment by the NSW Government is about helping to deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while also promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.”
Since 2009, the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects.
In 2022, there is a maximum of $400,000 to allocate in each electorate with incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils eligible to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000.
Applications close on Friday 10 June at 5pm.
