Community organisations in the Dubbo electorate are invited to apply for funding to support local projects under the NSW Government's Infrastructure Grants program.
A $12.5 million is available in the 2019/20 program for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.
For the first time, the grants are available for projects that support youth, mental health, homelessness and domestic violence services as well as drought-affected communities.
The grants are made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3 Fund which re-invests profits from gaming machines into community projects. Funding is available for infrastructure projects in three key areas:
- Arts and Culture
- Disaster Readiness and Community Infrastructure
- Sport and Recreation
Applications for the first round of funding for 2019/20 opened on Monday, August 5 and will close on Monday, August 26. Visit responsiblegambling.nsw.gov.au
