I encourage community groups to consider applying for 2012 grant funds from the Community Building Funding program. The Sydney electorate has been allocated $300,000.
The funding is for building or upgrading local facilities and includes capital works, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance or buying capital equipment.
Applicants need to demonstrate how their project will benefit their local community through the building or improvement of facilities to deliver positive social, recreational or environmental outcomes. Projects must start by late 2012 and be completed before the end of March 2013.
