“Applications close on Tuesday 30 October so interested community organisations and councils should finalise their applications as soon as possible to avoid disappointment,” Ms Upton said.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for community groups and councils to apply for the extra financial support they may need to build or improve a community facility in the electorate.”

Ms Upton said each electoral district in NSW is eligible for $200,000 in project funds.

Premier Barry O’Farrell said the program makes an important impact on the day to day lives of our local communities.

“In many cases the funds will go to much needed social infrastructure with sporting, youth, cultural and community clubs all benefiting from project funding,” Mr O’Farrell said. 

“The program will also provide jobs for local tradespeople in local communities across NSW.”

The 2012 program focuses on enhancing community infrastructure that enables community groups to provide the activities that encourage more harmonious, inclusive and participatory communities.

The NSW Government has committed $90 million over four years to this program.

In the three years of the program, more than 4,375 grants have been offered to local community organisations and councils, with over $125 million invested.

Applications strictly close on 30 October 2012 and can only be made through the online application system. For further details and to apply visit www.communitybuildingpartnership.nsw.gov.au or call 1300 707 155.
