Sport, community and other not-for-profit groups can make funding requests from the 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program, state MP Tamara Smith said.
CBP grants are available annually for community infrastructure projects that deliver social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
‘Local sports clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,’ Smith said. ‘The grants can pay for much-needed improvements to local facilities that promote participation in the local community.
‘If your organisation needs some extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then I encourage you to take the time to carefully prepare your application,’ she said.
The Community Building Partnership program has awarded funding to more than 10,000 valuable community projects since it commenced in 2009.
The Ballina Tennis Club, Bangalow Bowling and Sports Club as well as the Tintenbar East Ballina Football Club all received funding through the program last year.
Applications close on Monday 9 August.
