NSW Government Hands Out $400K Per Electorate

26 May 2022

The NSW Government has announced grants of between $5,000 and $150,000 for community infrastructure projects.

  • Are you a non-profit organisation?
  • Are you planning a project that delivers positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes?
  • Does this project promote community participation, inclusion and cohesion?

You may be eligible to apply for grant funding from the NSW Government through the Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

Since 2009, the program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects.

In 2022, there is a maximum of $400,000 to allocate in each electorate.

Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000. 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.

As total funding will be divided equally among the state electorates of NSW, applications will be assessed against other proposed projects within the same electorate.

Applications close on Friday 10 June at 5pm, and all projects must be completed by 31 March 2024.
