Latest Infrastructure Grants deliver big boost to communities
The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program is investing $4.1 million into 41 projects to strengthen local communities.
Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said the grants would boost the economy, provide local jobs and help businesses as the State reopens.
“This year we have committed $12.5 million to support projects to promote healthy lifestyles, enrich arts and cultural assets, fund essential infrastructure and help communities to prepare for local emergency situations,” Mr Dominello said.
“Some communities have struggled to maintain sports, cultural and other social activities during COVID-19, so the funding plays a pivotal role in promoting participation and inclusion.”
Examples of successful recipients include:
- The Dunghutti Elders Council received a $145,000 grant so they can upgrade their Kempsey community meeting space, a tin shed built more than 20 years ago, to the benefit of more than 650 Dunghutti adults.
- The Eurobodalla Shire Council received $200,000 to start work on a new SES facility in Batemans Bay after the original premises was destroyed in the 2019/20 black summer bushfires.
Since 2013, the NSW Government has funded more than 536 community projects worth $105 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
Infrastructure Grants are made possible through the NSW Government’s Clubgrants Category 3 Fund, which reinvests a contribution from the state’s registered clubs gaming machine profits back into community projects.
The full list of funded projects is available on the Clubgrants Category 3 Infrastructure Grants past recipients web page .
The next round of the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program open from today, 1 November to Monday 22 November.
