2021 Community Building Partnership Program Now Open
Stuart Ayres said $300,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, and urged 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,” Stuart Ayres 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 $362 million to over 16,600 projects since it commenced in 2009.
Previous year’s recipients have included projects such as:
- Emu Plains Public School P & C – a new multi purpose outdoor court,
- Neuromoves Spinal Cord Injuries Australia – new equipment,
- Nepean Rowing Club – new training skulls and,
- Penrith High School – Alumni Garden.
“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Stuart Ayres said.
“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $300,000.”
Applications are open from Monday 19 April and close at 5pm, Friday 14 May 2021. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
