Up to $300,000 available for infrastructure spending

COMMUNITY groups have until February 19 to apply for some big licks of funding being made available by the NSW Government.

Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said the funding comes from the Clubgrants Category 3 scheme and managed under the Infrastructure Grants program.

"The grants support new or upgraded community facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency preparedness,” he said.

"These projects bring people together to enjoy new or improved facilities or help improve community safety in times of emergency.

"During this term of government $50 million is being provided to communities from the Clubgrants program which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.

"Instead of one round of funding each year, there are now four rounds while a streamlined application process has cut red tape and led to faster assessment.”

There are big dollars on the table.

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.
