THE Bulahdelah Chamber of Commerce and Tourism has received funding through the Community Building Partnership (CBP) to improve their driveway at the Bulahdelah Rural Transaction Centre (RTC).

The RTC provides many services that are absent from many rural areas and the Chamber aims to have their facilities the best possible.

“Over the particularly wet seasons we had, the driveway had fallen into such a state of disrepair that it was impossible for us to provide safe access for our customers and clients,” Bulahdelah Chamber Vice President Kevin Carter told Myall Coast NOTA.

“This funding will help to make this project of a new concrete driveway possible,” said Mr Carter.

The NSW Government is investing through the CBP in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes, while also promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.

Since 2009, the Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $399 million to over 18,000 projects.

In 2022, there is a maximum of $400,000 to allocate in each electorate.

Incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils are eligible to apply for grants of between $5000 and $150,000.

The average grant awarded is around $20,000.

In our readership area Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Life Saving Club Inc., North Arm Cove Community Association Inc. Myall Coast Radio Inc, Pindimar Bundabah Community Association, Karuah Rural Fire Brigade and Delhuntie Park Youth Care and Lifestyle Inc have also received funding for many worthwhile infrastructure projects.

The 2023 round of this program will open in a few months and community groups are encouraged to apply for infrastructure funding.

Contact your local state member for further details.

In addition the Bulahdelah Chamber has set up a fund from the proceeds of the sale of the old doctor’s surgery and funding is available to not for profit organisations in the 2324 postcode for infrastructure projects to $1000.
