Grants available for local emergency relief projects
Local organisations and councils in Oxley are encouraged to apply for grant funding to deliver emergency relief infrastructure projects.
Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP is inviting local not-for-profit groups and councils to apply for the grants of up to $300,000 for new or upgraded emergency relief infrastructure.
Mrs Pavey said these grants are being made available under the NSW Government’s 2016/17 ClubGRANTS program.
“Particular emphasis will be placed on projects that benefit disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this program round.
“Over this term of government, around $50 million in ClubGRANTS will be provided to local communities across NSW to support three categories of infrastructure: sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency relief facilities.”
Deputy Premier Troy Grant said many organisations go above and beyond to help their community and the NSW Government wants to help improve facilities that are relied upon by so many.
“New emergency relief facilities will support the invaluable efforts of our wonderful emergency service workers and volunteers in saving lives and property during times of crisis,” Mr Grant said.
An applicant information pack is now available on the Liquor & Gaming NSW website www.liquorandgaming.justice.nsw.gov.au with applications closing on Friday 7 October 2016.
Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS fund committee and approved applicants will then be invited to lodge formal applications. Successful projects will be announced in early 2017.
