Local organisations in the Sutherland Shire can now apply for funding to support local community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Cronulla Mark Speakman, Member for Miranda Eleni Petinos and Member for Heathcote Lee Evans said today.
$12.5 million is available in 2019/20 for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.
Since 2013, the NSW Government has funded over 350 community projects worth $82 million under Infrastructure Grants.
The grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in three key areas:
- Arts & Culture;
- Disaster Readiness & Community Infrastructure;
- Sport & Recreation.
