The 2022 community building partnership program has $400,000 up for grabs.
And all community groups, not-for-profits and sporting groups – even schools – in Campbelltown have to do to get a slice of that pot of taxpayers’ money is apply for a grant.
They can apply for a special project they are planning for anywhere between $5,000 to $150,000.
The community building partnership program is available in all NSW electorates.
Here in Campbelltown, local MP Greg Warren is encouraging community groups, including sports clubs, to apply for funding.
Mr Warren, pictured above right at a local school – has helped secure funding for many projects, from men’s sheds to sport clubs, as part of the community building partnerships since he was elected in 2015.
They have included:
East Campbelltown Public School P&C – $60,000 for a covered outdoor space;
St Vincent de Paul Nagle Centre – $40,000 for a refurbishment;
Macarthur Heights Community Group – $40,000 for a playground and exercise equipment at Main Ridge Park;
Campbelltown Harlequins Rugby Club – $50,000 for a lighting upgrade at Campbelltown Showground;
WILMA Women’s Health Centre – $50,000 for an upgraded outdoor area;
Rosemeadow Public School P&C – $50,000 for a catering trailer;
Beverley Park School – $50,000 for an outdoor area.
“The community building partnerships present local community groups, not-for-profits and sporting associations with an opportunity to secure funding for projects that would benefit our community,” says Mr Warren.
“I’m humbled to have helped secure well in excess of $2 million for projects since first being elected in 2015.
“I would encourage every eligible group or organisation to apply for a grant in 2022.”
The 2022 applications open on May 16 and close at 5pm on June 10. For more information visit here.
