Hogan supports Clarence BMX Club with a community grant
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a $15,000 grant to the Clarence Valley BMX Club to upgrade its track and improve safety.
“This is a great win for the club, which has well over 100 members, and the wider Clarence community,” he said.
“The upgrade will make the track safer for riders and require less maintenance by volunteers, allowing them to focus more on assisting the riders and growing the sport in the Clarence.”
The grant will allow the club to upgrade the existing track, replacing the dirt berm (banked corner) with asphalt that require little to no maintenance and making it much safer for riders.
About 50 tonnes of asphalt will be used in the upgrade, requiring a specialist contractor to undertake the work.
The track is open to the public on non-race days and is widely used by the general community.
The grant is under the first round of the Stronger Communities programme.
Round 2 of the Stronger Communities Programme closes soon.
Under the programme, community organisation can apply for grants of between $5000 and $20,000 for capital works.
The organisation must match the funding in either cash or “in kind” donations.
If an organisation is interested in applying, they must submit their application by Friday,
April 8 and inform Mr Hogan’s office. Funding will be delivered from July 2016.
