Community organisations have more opportunities to apply for funding as NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants become available four times each year.
Bega MP Andrew Constance said the changes make it easier to apply for a wide range of grants across arts and culture, emergency preparedness, and sport and recreation.
“The new funding guidelines will mean the NSW Government can fund a wider range of projects. A simpler application process will cut red tape and allow for faster assessment,” Mr Constance said.
“I encourage our local community organisations to learn more about the new guidelines and consider applying for grants, with the first new funding round opening Tuesday, August 1.”
Instead of one round of funding each year for grants up to $1 million, there will now be four rounds. New funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness, and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.
Mr Constance said the Infrastructure Grants program had supported projects like sports ground facilities, public swimming pools, children’s play areas, museums, art galleries, back-up power generators, and accommodation for volunteers and the community.
