‘‘I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our community,” Member for Murray Austin Evans said.

Community organisations in both Murray and Albury state electorates can now apply for the next round of funding for local projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

Infrastructure Grants support new or upgraded community facilities across arts and culture, emergency preparedness, and sport and recreation.

‘‘I encourage local organisations to consider applying for a project that will help make a real difference to our community,” Member for Murray Austin Evans said.

‘‘The grants are funded through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which enables registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machine revenue to benefit local communities.

‘‘These projects bring people together to enjoy new or improved sports, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, or help improve community safety in times of emergency,’’ Mr Evans said.

Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.

Applications for the next round of Infrastructure Grants are open from May 1 until May 21.
