The NSW Government has announced that the Community Building Partnership program will be continuing again in 2020.

Applications will open next Monday 4 May and close 5pm Friday, 12 June.

In 2020, there is a maximum of $300,000 to allocate in each state electorate. Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $2,500 and $300,000. As a guide, the average grant awarded is around $20,000. The program invests in projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.

Councils, schools, cricket clubs and associations that have plans for new, or upgrades to, cricket facilities or off-field support infrastructure (such as shade, shelter, mowers/rollers, equipment or drinking stations) are urged to take advantage of this opportunity.

Those interested in applying must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
