Community Building Partnership program – NOW OPEN!!

The NSW Government is pleased to announce that the 2013 Community Building Partnership program is now open for applications.

The Community Building Partnership program aims to provide improved community infrastructure for the people of NSW and encourage the enhancement of local community based activities that create more vibrant and inclusive communities. The program offers grants across the State at an individual electoral district level for community infrastructure projects.

Community infrastructure supports activities that benefit communities, including:

  • the delivery of social services to members of society, especially those disadvantaged through low income, a non-English speaking background, physical disabilities and members of Indigenous communities;
  • participation in group sport, cultural and artistic activity;
  • the pursuit of community social, educational and religious interests;
  • support for families through community based child care and child services;
  • activities for young people such as guides, scouting and youth interest groups that encourage interaction and tolerance between young people and;
  • enhancing the community’s interaction with the natural environment by improving access (particularly for the disabled) to wilderness areas, parklands and outdoor recreational facilities

Local councils and incorporated not-for-profit bodies such as charities, sporting, social and environmental groups may apply for grants. Projects are required to be completed before the end of March 2015. For further information about who can apply, what you may be able to apply for, how much funding is available and the application process, visit the Community Building Partnership website at:
