Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said the grants would boost the economy, provide local jobs and help businesses as the State reopens.
“This year we have committed $12.5 million to support projects to promote healthy lifestyles, enrich arts and cultural assets, fund essential infrastructure and help communities to prepare for local emergency situations,” Victor Dominello said.
“Some communities have struggled to maintain sports, cultural and other social activities during COVID-19, so the funding plays a pivotal role in promoting participation and inclusion.”
Since 2013, the NSW Government has funded more than 536 community projects worth $105 million under the Infrastructure Grants program.
Infrastructure Grants are made possible through the NSW Government’s Clubgrants Category 3 Fund, which reinvests a contribution from the state’s registered clubs gaming machine profits back into community projects.
The next round of the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program open from today, 1 November to Monday 22 November.
