Ramblers happy with their new shed

Last year the Clarence Valley Ramblers were successful in securing an $8000 grant under the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships (CBP) program to build a shed (which is housed at the Grafton Greyhound track) to store their equipment such as their trailer, motorised buggy and other Club assets they use for monthly outings and to run the successful Jacaranda RV Rally.

Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis is urging other not-for-profit organisations to consider applying for funding under the CBP program with applications now open.

The CBP provides funding for small community infrastructure projects such as upgrades to meeting places, recreational and sporting facilities and local preschools and schools.

This is a terrific grants stream and one of the easiest to apply for.

Grants need to be for construction of new community infrastructure, refurbishment, repair and maintenance of existing community infrastructure; or capital equipment with a minimum individual asset value of $2500.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday September 27.
