Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith encourages local community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities to apply for funding through the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

Stuart Ayres said applications can now be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness projects.

“This funding can make a real difference to the local community, either by providing new or improved sporting or cultural facilities, or by protecting local residents in emergency situations,” Stuart Ayres said.

“This year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.”     

The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.

Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.  

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants are open until 23 July.
