Fund to help build your com­mu­nity

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

Ap­pli­ca­tions for fund­ing through the 2017 Com­mu­nity Build­ing Part­ner­ship pro­gram, for new in­fra­struc­ture-based projects that meet a need in the lo­cal com­mu­nity, are now open.

‘‘These grants are open to lo­cal coun­cils and in­cor­po­rated not-for-prof­its such as char­i­ties, sport­ing, so­cial and ser­vice groups that are look­ing to build or re­fur­bish es­sen­tial fa­cil­i­ties for their com­mu­nity,” NSW Mem­ber for Al­bury Greg Aplin said.

‘‘There is a high de­mand for funds through the pro­gram, so please en­sure you take the re­quired time and care in pre­par­ing your ap­pli­ca­tion against the as­sess­ment cri­te­ria.’’

Grant ap­pli­ca­tions must have a min­i­mum value of $2,500 to be el­i­gi­ble for fund­ing un­der the pro­gram.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Au­gust 9. Go to www.com­mu­ni­ty­build­ing­part­ner­ship.nsw.gov.au for de­tails.
