LAST DAYS FOR 2015 COMMUNITY BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FUNDING APPLICATIONS

MEDIA RELEASE


Community groups in the Shellharbour electorate are being reminded by Member for Shellharbour Anna Watson that the closing date for applications in next Friday, 7 August 2015.

“I’m encouraging community groups in my electorate, who might not have lodged an application for the Community Building Partnerships program to think about doing so as quickly as possible.

“There are only limited days left to lodge application.

“Applications close next Friday afternoon at 5pm sharp.

“There will not be any opportunity to lodge late applications.

“I would hate to see good projects not be able to have the opportunity of funding because of a missed deadline”, Ms Watson said.

Ms Watson said that applications must be lodged online at www.communitybuildingpartnership.nsw.gov.au or contact the CBP assistance line on 13 77 88.

Ms Watson said that $300,000 was available for total funding for the Shellharbour electorate.

“For every year since the CBP was introduced by the former State Labor Government in 2010, applications from the local community in my electorate continues to grow.

“For example, under last year’s CBP application for funding totalled just over $1.3 million.

“I say to local community groups: you’ve got to be in it to win it”, she said.
