Grants of between $100,000 to $300,000 will be available for sport and recreation clubs.

Applications for the next round of the NSW government’s Infrastructure Grants program are now open.

The grants support new or upgraded community facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture as well as emergency preparedness. 

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.

Member for Port Macquarie Leslie Williams said the funding comes from the ClubGRANTS category three program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.

“These projects bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency.

“Recent improvements to the program have created more chances to apply for funding and encouraged more diverse projects.

“Instead of one round of funding each year, there are now four rounds, while a streamlined application process has cut red tape and led to faster assessment,” Mrs Williams said. 

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants are open until November 20.
