COMMUNITY FUNDING PROGRAM OPEN
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is encouraging local community groups and not-for-profit groups to apply for a share of $300,000 in funding under the hugely popular Community Building Partnerships Program.
Mr Anderson said the Tamworth Electorate can share in $300,000 for projects that deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
“The Community Building Partnerships program has delivered for our community time and time again with local sports clubs, charities, schools, and recreation facilities receiving much-needed funding,” Mr Anderson said.
“If your organisation or club needs additional funding for infrastructure projects, such as playgrounds, accessible features or equipment. The funding can also be used for much-needed repairs.”
The Community Building Partnership Program has delivered outcomes for a number of projects in the past including toilet amenities for Barraba Civilian and Military Rifle Club, a Tractor for the Bowling Alley Point Reserve Trust, an expansion of facilities at Inala House, and repairs to flood damage at Werris Creek Golf Club.
“Last year’s program saw some great projects delivered for our region so I am keen to see a significant number of applications this year,” Mr Anderson added.
“It does take time to prepare an application so I would encourage our local community groups to begin preparing now.”
Applications are open now and close at 5pm on Friday 27th October 2023. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
