Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes is encouraging local community organisations to apply for funds under the latest round of the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program.

The Infrastructure Grants Program supports new or upgraded community facilities across three key areas – sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness.

The funding comes from the ClubGrants Category 3 Program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue back into local communities.

“These grants provide an opportunity for our local community organisations to dream big and help equip them to make a real difference in our community,” Rob Stokes said today.

“Recent improvements to the program include the introduction of four funding rounds per year, instead of just one – and the application process is now more streamlined.

“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.

“There are many local organisations that have great plans and ideas – but just need a financial boost to help make them happen.

“Applications for this round of funding close 20 November, 2017,” Rob Stokes said.
