EMERGENCY relief grants are now available for organisations and councils in the Goulburn electorate.

Member for Goulburn Pru Goward said groups and councils could apply for grants of up to $300,000 for new or upgraded emergency relief infrastructure.

The grants have been made available under the NSW Government’s 2016/17 ClubGRANTS program for projects that help protect communities during emergencies such as bushfires, storms and floods.

“I encourage all eligible groups to consider submitting an application for a project that will make a real difference,” Ms Goward said.

“Particular emphasis will be placed on projects that benefit disadvantaged and regional and remote communities in this program round.”

More information is available at www.liquorandgaming.justice.nsw.gov.au and applications close on October 7.

Applications will be assessed by the independent ClubGRANTS fund committee and approved applicants will then be invited to lodge formal applications.

Successful projects will be announced in early 2017.
