Penrith 2019 Community Building Partnerships Program Now Open
Stuart Ayres said $300,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including Penrith and urged local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
“Local sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Stuart Ayres said.
“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.”
Some examples of previous recipients and projects have included: The Girl Guides Glenbrook- kitchen refurbishment, Lapstone Public School – multipurpose sports court, Nordoff Robbins – purpose built storage, Penrith AFL- amenities upgrade, Emu Plains Public School – multipurpose hard court.
The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $300 million in funding to 13,800 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Stuart Ayres said.
“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $300,000.”
Applications opened Monday 2 September and close at 5pm, Friday 27 September 2019. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
