MEDIA RELEASE - Applications open for 2020 CBP Grants
APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR 2020 CBP GRANTS
Member for Maitland, Jenny Aitchison MP, today announced applications are now open for the 2020 Community Building Partnership Program, unlocking $27.9 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.
Ms Aitchison says $300,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including Maitland, and urges local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
“Local sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Ms Aitchison said.
“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.”
The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $330 million in funding to 15,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Ms Aitchison said.
“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of the $300,000.”
Applications are open from Monday 4 May 2020 and close at 5pm, Friday 12 June 2020. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
