The NSW Community Building Partnership programaims to provide improved community infrastructure for the people of NSW andencourage the enhancement of local community based activities that create morevibrant and inclusive communities. The bicycle covers all this and more (with bells on), so we encourage you and your members to review the opportunity and consider if you could apply.
The program offers grants across the State atan individual State Electorate level for community infrastructure projects. Grantfunding of up to $300,000 is available for every NSW State Electorate. Anadditional $100,000 is available for electorates with higher levels of socialdisadvantage as indicated by higher comparative unemployment rates.
