From the Community Building Partnership website: 

The NSW Community Building Partnership (CBP) program has awarded funding to over 10000 valuable community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Run annually, the program awards grants for community infrastructure projects that:

  • deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
  • promote community participation, inclusion and cohesion

$27.9 million is available in 2017, with an equal allocation of $300,000 available to fund projects in each State electorate of NSW. The CBP ensures our communities remain strong, connected and healthy by supporting organisations that think first and foremost of the needs of locals.

Grants are available for local councils and incorporated not-for-profit organisations.
