More than $1.4 million invested in local projects

More than 130 local projects have been given the green light thanks to funding allocated under the annual ClubGRANTS program.

The state-wide initiative has been operating in Canterbury-Bankstown since 1998, with millions of dollars from gaming revenue being invested back into the community.

Today, representatives from local organisations and community groups attended a special presentation at Revesby Workers Club.

Mayor Khal Asfour said ClubGRANTS were a terrific example of how councils can work with local clubs to assist the community.

"For many years now, Council has worked with the City’s licensed clubs, to provide essential funding for projects and programs benefitting the local community," Mayor Asfour said.

"This year, 235 applications were received, requesting more than $4 million, with 136 projects chosen to share $1,468,565."

The successful projects receiving funding under ClubGRANTS were identified following social planning workshops and consultation with local community networks. Applications were assessed on their capacity to address local needs of the community and support community target groups including:

  • Culturally & linguistically diverse (CALD) communities;
  • Children and families;
  • Youth; and
  • People with disability.

"I am looking forward to seeing the results of the successful projects," Mayor Asfour said.

"Very soon, local community groups and organisations will have another opportunity to gain financial support for their projects, through Council’s Community Grants program."
