"The ClubGRANTS Category 3 2014/15 funding round offers up to $12 million to support the development of high quality and well managed sport, recreational and cultural infrastructure.
"Community organisations will be able to build or upgrade facilities that respond to an identified community need. Projects that can demonstrate particular benefits in regional or remote NSW and/or for disadvantaged communities will be highly regarded.
"Those eligible to apply for grants of between $100,000 and $500,000 include local government, non-profit organisations, and non-trading cooperatives with facilities such as sports grounds, recreational parks, a community skate park or BMX course, children’s play areas, a music performance space, a community art studio, a local museum or gallery.
"Successful Expression of Interest applicants will be invited to submit a full application," Mr Grant said.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said through ClubGRANTS, registered clubs this year delivered more than $100 million to worthy causes and local communities.
"ClubGRANTS is a successful program that has been running for more than 15 years, and now thanks to ClubGRANTS Category 3, clubs can help fund crucial community infrastructure and services for local communities across the state," Mr Ball said.
