Clarence and Richmond Valley community groups that use Crown land should consider putting their hat in the ring for a newly opened round of grants, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.
“The NSW Government’s $14 million Crown Reserves Improvement Fund maintains, and upgrades reserves and community facilities on publicly owned property,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“Grant applications are open to Crown land reserve managers including local councils, community groups who use Crown land and showgrounds.”
“Typical beneficiaries include surf lifesaving clubs, scouts and girl guide groups, public halls, the RSPCA and PCYC, NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW State Emergency Service.
“A lot of these areas are being underused because of the coronavirus, so it’s not only a good time to rejuvenate them, it will also help local tradies through the economic crisis.”
Applications close on 10 July. For more information visit www.reservemanager.crownland.nsw.gov.au.
