CBP GRANTS, APPLY NOW!

Upper Hunter MP Dave Layzell is encouraging applications for the 2022 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program, which unlocks $37.2 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.


Mr Layzell said $400,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including the Upper Hunter Electorate, and urges local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.


“Local sports clubs, charities, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Mr Layzell said.


“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.”


The CBP program has invested $1 million in 64 community projects from Gloucester to Merriwa, from Quirindi to Clarence Town during the current term of the Nationals and Liberals NSW Government.


“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Mr Layzell said.


“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $400,000.”


Applications will close at 5 pm, Friday 10 June 2022.


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