Tesch calls for grant applications
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is inviting local groups to apply for Community Building Partnership Grants.
The program, which open on Monday, makes $300,000 available in the electorate of Gosford for projects for not-for-profit organisations such as schools, sporting clubs and charities.
"If your local sporting club, school or charity needs funding to upgrade amenities, purchase new equipment or buy a new vehicle then get onto these grants," said Ms Tesch.
"Community Building Partnerships offer grants of between $5000 and $150,000 for not-for-profit organisations looking to build capital works, upgrade equipment or buy vehicles.
"Local charities in particular are feeling the pinch of a Covid-stricken economy and the need for better support in our community.
"These grants give an opportunity for charities and other valuable organisations to get the much-needed upgrades to come out of Covid stronger than ever," she said.
Applications are open until 5pm on Friday, May 14.
Program guidelines and other information about the NSW 2021 Community Building Partnership Program is available at the program website, www.nsw.gov.au/cbp
