NSW Nationals Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead has announced that applications will open soon for the popular Community Building Partnership Program.

In 2020, $300,000 is available for community infrastructure projects across the Myall Lakes electorate alone.

Mr Bromhead urged all rural and regional councils and community groups to apply from Monday, May 4 to deliver local projects.

“Sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that can benefit,” Mr Bromhead said.

“If your organisation or club needs infrastructure, such as playgrounds, equipment or refurbishment, then this is the grant program in which 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.

“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of the $300,000,” Mr Bromhead said.

Applicants are encouraged to read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible; applications close at 5pm on Friday, June 12, 2020.
