The NSW Community Building Partnership program awards grants for community infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
Grants are available for the following eligible activities:
- construction of new community infrastructure
- refurbishment, repair and maintenance of existing community infrastructure
- capital equipment with a minimum individual asset value of $2500.
Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants between $2500 and $330,000. The average grant awarded is around $20,000.
Projects with contributions from their own or other sources will be considered favourably. Local councils, including their section 355 committees, are required to provide matched funding to the CBP grants.
Eligible projects will also be assessed against four program criteria:
- Enhancing facilities
- Meeting community needs
- Increasing community participation
- The organisation’s capacity
A significant number of community organisations in Central West NSW received funding under the CBP Program in 2017.
Applications close 15 June 2018, with announcement of successful projects end 2018.
