At any given time, there are a number of government and non-government grants available to organisations and community groups within the electorate of Cessnock.

I regularly send out an email which lists the grants programs that are seeking applications. Please contact my office to be included in my grants email list or sign up to the e-newsletter.

Community Building Partnership Program

Each year, through my office, the Community Building Partnership Program funds a number of local grants to community groups throughout the Electorate of Cessnock. The grants provide funding for infrastructure projects that deliver social, environmental and recreational outcomes. For more information, visit the Community Building Partnership.

Local Sports Grants

The Local Sport Grant Program provides funding, through my office, for sporting groups to increase physical activity, reduce barriers to participation in local sport, and assist clubs provide quality service to their members. Grants can be provided for training and administration purposes, running a local sports event, subsidising participation costs, or enhancing/constructing sporting facilities. For more information, visit the Local Sport Grant Program website.
