There are a number of grants that are available to organisations within the Myall Lakes Electorate. I will announce these on the website, on my Facebook page and in my newsletter. You can contact the office for assistance and information on the application process.
Stronger Country Communities
This fund delivers crucial local infrastructure to improve the quality of life of people living in regional NSW. Funding is provided to local projects such as parks, community halls, playgrounds and amenity blocks.
The Stronger Country Communities Fund is investing in infrastructure projects in regional NSW communities to improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work.
The NSW Government has committed $200 million for applications to support local infrastructure projects that will improve amenity and help sustain the social bonds at the heart of strong regional communities. For more information, visit the Stronger Country Communities website.
Community Building Partnership
Each year the NSW Government funds the Community Building Partnership program which awards a range of grants to incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils. The grants provide funding for the improvement of local community facilities. For more information, visit the Community Building Partnership website.
