Community projects needing additional funding support can now apply for the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has encouraged local councils, organisations and community groups to get involved.

“This program has been hugely successful in the Cootamundra electorate allowing local groups to undertake a wide range of projects,” Ms Cooke said.

“We have had freezer upgrades for Meals on Wheels, refurbishments at Men’s Sheds and the purchase of maintenance equipment to help local sporting clubs – just to name a few.”

“This investment by the NSW Government is about helping to deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while also promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.”

Since 2009, the Community Building Partnership (CBP) 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 with incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils eligible to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000.

Applications opened on Monday 16 May 2022 and close on Friday 10 June at 5pm.
