State Member for the Electorate of Cessnock, Clayton Barr, MP, has announced that the NSW Government will once again conduct the Community Building Partnership Program in 2022.

Clayton Barr, MP, said that $400,000 is available for projects in each NSW Electorate including the Electorate of Cessnock and urges local councils and not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“Local sports clubs, charities, school P&C associations, not-for-profits, Men’s Sheds, Scouts or Girl Guides are just some of the groups that can benefit from the program.”

“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as new awning, ride-on lawn mower, new goals posts, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.”

The program will open at 9am on Monday 16 May, 2022 and applications will close at 5pm sharp on Friday 10 June 2022. Late applications will not be considered.

Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.

The Community Building Partnership Program, first introduced by the Labor Government in 2009 has provided funding to thousands of community groups, sporting clubs and councils across NSW to build or upgrade local facilities. Since it was introduced it has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects.
