2017 Community Building Partnership Program now open
Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams is encouraging local not-for-profit groups to apply for funding through the 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.
“CBP grants are available annually for community infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” Mrs Williams said.
“Through the program, the NSW Government ensures funding is available to support organisations that think first-and-foremost about the needs of locals.
"Local sports clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that have benefited from this program over the past few years.”
“In fact since 2011, our local community has received almost two million dollars in CBP grants,” Mrs Williams said.
“The grants can pay for much-needed improvements to local facilities that promote participation in the community.”
“If your organisation needs some extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then I encourage you to take the time to carefully prepare your application,” Mrs Williams said.
The Community Building Partnership program has awarded funding to more than 10,000 valuable community projects across NSW since it commenced in 2009.
Applications for funding are now open and close on Monday 9 August. Before applying, applicants must read the program guidelines to check that both their organisation and proposed project are eligible.
