NSW Community Building Partnership Funding 2012
11 September 2012 at 11:48 am
The NSW Government has announced the Community Building Partnership Grants program is now open for projects in 2012/13.
The Community Building Partnership (CBP) program provides funds for community groups and local councils to invest in community infrastructure throughout the State.
Incorporated Not for Profit community organisations and local councils can apply for funding to build and improve community facilities in their local area.
Grant funding of $200,000 will be made available for every electoral district with an additional $100,000 for electorates identified with higher unemployment rates.
Grants applications will be assessed on merit against the project criteria and applicants are advised that the process is highly competitive.
Applicants should demonstrate how their project will benefit their local community through the building or improvement of facilities to deliver positive social, recreational or environmental outcomes.
Applications from local councils require a commitment of matching funding by the council.
Projects should be ready to commence by early 2013 and be completed before the end of March 2014.
Applications for the CBP 2012 opened on 27 August 2012 and will close on 30 October 2012.
Details including Guidance Notes, FAQs and the online application form can be accessed here.
Applications can only be submitted online.
