Melinda with Eric and Penny Cork at the Byabarra Tennis Club – upgraded with support of a CBP grant

The Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, has announced that applications are now open for the popular Community Building Partnership Program, unlocking $30 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.

Mrs Pavey said $330,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including Oxley, and urges not-for-profit groups to apply.

“Local sporting clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Mrs Pavey said.

“The NSW Government has made improving local infrastructure a key priority and our strong economic management allows us to make these investments.

“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then the CBP program is for you.”

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded $275 million in funding to 12,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.

“This is a great opportunity to get the support your community group needs to make real improvements in the places you meet, train or play sports.

“Take the time to prepare and submit your application.”

Applications are open from today and close at 5pm on Friday 15 June 2018.

Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
