Community organisations in the Monaro will have the opportunity to make their projects and ideas a reality with applications opening soon for the next round of the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today.

Mr Barilaro said Infrastructure Grants support new or upgraded community facilities across arts and culture, emergency preparedness, and sport and recreation.

“I am calling on our community and our local organisations to consider applying for funding for a project that will help make a real difference to our region,” Mr Barilaro.

“Many of our community groups are sitting on fantastic ideas or projects that could be made a reality thanks to this round of funding.

“We are looking for projects that bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, cultural, recreational or arts facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency.

“If you have a project in mind, please consider applying for funding and if you need assistance during the application process, please get in touch with me.”

Minister for Racing Paul Toole said $50 million in Infrastructure Grants is being provided to communities across NSW in the current term of government.

“Recent improvements to the program have created more chances to apply for funding and encouraged more diverse projects,” Mr Toole said.

Funding 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 for the next round of Infrastructure Grants are open from 1 to 21 May.
