Member for Castle Hill Ray Williams MP has announced the opening of applications for the 2022 Community Building Partnership program, unlocking $37.2 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.

Mr Williams said $400,000 is available for projects in each NSW electorate, including Castle Hill, and urged 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, schools and museums are just some of the groups that benefit from this program,” Mr Williams said.

“If your organisation or club needs extra funding for infrastructure, such as playgrounds, accessible features, equipment or refurbishment, then I’d strongly encourage you to apply.”

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects since it commenced in 2009.

“This program means that you can support your community group to improve the places you meet, train or play,” Mr Williams said.

“Take the time to prepare and submit your application so your community group doesn’t miss out on a share of $400,000.”

Applications are now open and close at 5 pm, Friday 10 June 2022. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
