Community Infrastructure Grants

Closes 21 August & 18 December, 2023. Community organisations across the state are encouraged to apply for funding under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program to enhance local services and improve residents’ quality of life.

From 31 July, the $12.5 million program will welcome applications for arts, sports, community infrastructure and disaster preparedness projects to build or upgrade facilities.

There are four funding categories:

  • Arts & Culture: $50,000 to $200,000 available per project
  • Community Infrastructure: $50,000 to $250,000 available per project
  • Disaster Readiness: $50,000 to $200,000 available per project
  • Sport & Recreation: $50,000 to $300,000 available per project.

Minister for Gaming and Racing David Harris said the NSW Government is pleased to be supporting organisations making a positive difference in their communities.

“The Infrastructure Grants program is all about supporting projects that improve community connectedness in the arts and sport, provide new or improved facilities or deliver innovative local solutions in emergency preparedness,” Mr Harris said.

“Over the last ten years, more than 700 projects have been funded right across NSW, under this Program, helping to create connected, cohesive and resilient communities. I look forward to the next rounds doing the same.”

Funding under the program is made possible by Clubgrants Category 3, which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects. Applications are assessed by independent expert panel administered through the NSW Office of Responsible Gambling.

Since 2013, the Infrastructure Grants program has provided $125 million to support more than 700 local council and not-for-profit community projects.

The 2023/24 program offers two grant rounds: 31 July – 21 August 2023 and 27 November – 18 December 2023.  Start preparing your application for Round 2 now!
