2017 Community building partnership program now open

Member for Hawkesbury, Dominic Perrottet encourages local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for funding requests through the 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

CBP grants are available annually for community infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes. Through the program, the NSW Government ensures funding is available to support organisations that think first-andforemost about the needs of locals.

Local sports clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that benefit from this program. The grants can pay for muchneeded improvements to local facilities that promote participation in the local community. If your organisation needs some extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then I encourage you to take the time to carefully prepare your application.

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded funding to more than 10,000 valuable community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Applications for funding will opened on Monday 26 June and close on Wednesday 9 August.

Before applying, applicants must read the program guidelines to check that both their organisation and proposed project are eligible.
