$6 million available for local community groups

Hospitality and errands minister Kevin Anderson said the NSW government’s $12.5 million annual investment is designed to help local communities build

or modernize facilities.

“These grants provide much-needed funds to communities to support their local economies and grassroots community organizations,” Mr. Anderson said.

“There’s not a lot of money a raffle or membership drive can raise, but with these grants, local groups can accelerate the development of vital community facilities.”

Infrastructure grants are made possible through the Category 3 Clubgrants program, which reinvests profits from registered club gaming machines into community projects.

ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis said giving back to the local community is a key priority for registered clubs.

“There is no better example of Clubs giving back to their communities than through the ClubGRANTS scheme. Whether you are a sports group, charity or community not-for-profit, Clubs in NSW provide million dollars each year to these worthy causes,” said Landis.

Since 2015, the New South Wales government has funded over 520 community projects worth over $81 million under the scheme.

The latest round awarded more than $4.2 million to 43 projects in the areas of sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster preparedness and critical community infrastructure.
