Media Release

Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $5000 and $150,000 to help make their town or suburb a better place to live, work, learn and play.

“Community groups of all kinds across my electorate rely on grants to fund repairs, upgrades and infrastructure projects.”

“This is a longstanding program and I know communities have been eagerly awaiting its launch for 2023.”

“The program is for small infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental, and recreational benefits while promoting community participation and inclusion.

“In our region I’ve seen the positive effect of these grants, whether small or large.  

“From upgrades at local halls and community kitchens, fixing drainage at Nimbin sports fields, upgrading heating at Tenterfield Memorial Baths, to new facilities at local preschools and many more, these grants have made a difference for local communities.

Grants must be for building, refurbishing or repairing community infrastructure, or for buying freestanding equipment or vehicles.

Each state electorate receives a maximum of $300,000 in funding and applications are assessed against other proposed projects within the same electorate.

Grant applications close Friday, 27 October 2023 at 5pm.
