L to R: 2018: Madeline Dobson, Wauchope Show Girl Winner and Melinda Pavey, Member for Oxley; Wauchope Showground received a grant in November 2017 to upgrade their fire doors on their pavillion. 

The Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, has announced that community organisations looking to build new or upgrade current facilities may now apply for funding from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

Mrs Pavey said applications may be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness projects.

“This funding can make a real difference to the local community, either by providing new or improved sporting or cultural facilities, or by protecting local residents in emergency situations,” Mrs Pavey said.

“This year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.”

The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.

Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants
are open to Monday 23 July, 2018.
