MEMBERS of the Muswellbrook cricket community are being invited to apply for funding for major projects through the McDonald’s Community Facility Grants Program.
The primary purpose of the 2014-15 initiative is to improve playing and practice facilities, which includes the development and expansion of practice facilities, the establishment and repair of synthetic and turf wickets, as well as improvements to amenities.
Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Tuesday, September 30, and all projects must be completed by December 31, 2015.
Funding is available up to a maximum of 25 per cent of the total cost of the project.
Game development general manager – NSW/ACT Cameron French said the program would help to provide valuable infrastructure for cricket communities around the state.
“The McDonald’s Community Facility Grants Program is designed to support councils, clubs, schools and associations in providing facilities that will help develop and foster cricket in their local communities,” he said.
“In 2013-14 we were able to support 27 projects from all over the NSW, ranging from Albury, Armidale, Wagga Wagga in regional NSW to Lane Cove, Bangor, Ryde, Waverley and Drummoyne in metropolitan Sydney.”
McDonald’s Muswellbrook licensee Phil Wilson said their support of the Community Facility Grants Program was just one way in which the partnership with Cricket NSW encourages and inspires local cricket players and communities.
“It brings me tremendous joy to know that through our partnership with Cricket NSW, we will help foster the growth and development of one of Australia’s most loved sports,” he said.
“I urge the Muswellbrook cricket community to take advantage of the program and apply.”
Organisations interested in applying for the Grants Program should contact Cricket NSW either by phone (8302 6000) or email (ga[email protected]老域名出售.au) to obtain a copy of the guidelines and application forms.
