FUNDING AVAILABLE TO HELP IMPROVE COMMUNITY FACILITIES

Clarence and Richmond Valley not for profit organisations wanting to upgrade their assets can now seek funding under the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis has announced.

“The program is designed to help improve community facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture and emergency preparedness,” Mr Gulaptis explained.

The funding, around $50 million over four years, comes from registered clubs reinvesting a portion of pokie machine profits.

Grant ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.

Applications are open until 19 February. For more information and how to apply, visit www.liquorandgaming.nsw.gov.au.
