November 28th, 2018

Dudley Redhead United FC, Valentine Eleebana SC, South Cardiff FC and Swansea FC have all recently been announced as successful applicants of the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership (CBF) to improve their facilities.

Dudley Redhead United Football Club were granted $17,531 in order to continue the improvement of their disability access works, while Valentine Eleebana Soccer Club received $14,938 for the resurfacing of Eleebana Oval.

South Cardiff Football Club were granted $35,514 to create a wet weather disability path and level their field, while Swansea Football Club received $25,000 for construction of an area for benches for spectators including disabled spectators.

The CBP aims to invest in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.

In 2018, incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and local councils were eligible to apply for grants between $2500 and $330,000. The average grant awarded is around $20,000.

Eligible projects are assessed against four program criteria:

> 1. Enhancing facilities — the project develops a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive community through the enhancement or construction of community infrastructure.

> 2. Meeting community needs — the project supports activities and services needed by local communities.

> 3. Increasing community participation — the project encourages participation in activities or services needed by a broad section of the community.

> 4. The organisation’s capacity — the applicant has the capacity to deliver the project on time and within scope.

CBP supports projects involving the construction of new community infrastructure, refurbishment, repair and maintenance of existing community infrastructure and purchase of capital equipment with a minimum individual asset value of more than $2500.
