Clarence and Richmond Valley not for profits invited to apply for grants

Clarence and Richmond Valley community groups and sports clubs should consider applying for funding in the latest round of the NSW Government’s Clubgrants program, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.

“A lot of our not for profit groups would have had their normal fund raising activities curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic, so this is a great opportunity to make up the shortfall,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program is funded from pokie tax revenue and has made numerous local projects a reality.”

Clubgrants funding is designed to give community organisations a boost when and where it’s needed most – it is available for projects to build, repair or upgrade facilities across arts and culture, sport and recreation, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.

Community infrastructure is also now a standalone category and it can be used for spaces like halls and meeting rooms, community transport, and infrastructure that supports youth, disability, mental health, homelessness, and domestic violence services.
