2017 Community Building Partnership Program Now Open

Media Releases

State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, is encouraging not-for-profit groups and local councils to apply for funding through the 2017 Community Building Partnership program.

Community Building Partnership grants are available annually for community infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes. Through the program, the NSW Government ensures funding is available to support organisations that think first-and-foremost about the needs of locals.

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded funding to more than 10,000 valuable community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Quotes attributable to Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery

“Local sports clubs, charities and men’s sheds are just some of the groups that benefit from this program.”

“The grants can pay for much-needed improvements to local facilities that promote participation in the local community.”

“The Community Building Partnership program looks for projects that will deliver positive social, recreational or environmental outcomes for our community through building or improving facilities.”

“If your organisation needs some extra funding for the building, refurbishment or enhancement of facilities, then I encourage you to take the time to carefully prepare your application.”

“Applications for funding will be open from Monday 26 June and close on Wednesday 9 August.”

“Before applying, applicants must read the program guidelines to check that both their organisation and proposed project are eligible.”
