Monaro community groups urged to apply now for infrastructure funding

Community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities are encouraged to apply for funding from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

Member for Monaro John Barilaro said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness until September 24.

“This funding can make a real difference to the local community, either by providing new or improved sporting or cultural facilities, or by protecting local residents in emergency situations,” Mr Barilaro said.

Mr Barilaro said recent projects funded under the Infrastructure Grants Program include the Bungendore Scout Hall, Jerrabomberra Hot Shots Tennis Courts and Cooma Little Theatre’s upgrade.

Mr Barilaro said this year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.

The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.

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.  

Applications for the current round of Infrastructure Grants are open until September 24.
