Not for profits urged to seek new grants on offer

A total of $300,000 in grants is up for grabs for community organisations in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys as of Monday 4 May, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis has announced.

“The Community Building Partnership program has proved extremely popular over the years in delivering projects with great social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” Mr Gulaptis said.

Mr Gulaptis said the virus crisis should not stop local community groups, preschools and sports clubs applying for a share to improve their facilities

“In fact, this enforced downtime is a great opportunity to plan for the future of your not for profit,” Mr Gulaptis said.

Applications close at 5pm, Friday 12 June 2020. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
