Member for Cootamundra Katrina Hodgkinson is encouraging Young organisations and local councils to apply for up to $300,000 under the NSW Government’s 2016/17 ClubGRANTS program to help them deliver an important emergency relief infrastructure project.
Grants are available for projects to help protect local communities during emergencies such as bushfires, storms and floods.
The grants would be timely considering the wet winter.
“I encourage all eligible groups to consider submitting an application for a project that will make a real difference to their local community, with particular emphasis on projects that benefit disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this round,” Ms Hodgkinson said.
“New or upgraded emergency relief facilities will help to support the enormous efforts of our emergency services personnel and volunteers in saving lives and property during times of crisis.”
Ms Hodgkinson said these organisations go above and beyond to help their community and the NSW Government is proud to be able help improve facilities that are relied upon by so many.
An applicant information pack is now available on the Liquor & Gaming NSW website www.liquorandgaming.justice.nsw.gov.au with applications closing on Friday, October 7, 2016.
Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS fund committee and approved applicants will then be invited to lodge formal applications.
Successful projects will be announced in early 2017.
