Call for Community Building Partnership Grant applications

Member for Sydney Alex Greenwich has called on community organisations to consider applying for a Community Building Partnership grant for capital works or equipment.

The Sydney electorate has $400,000 to be allocated for refurbishing or repairing existing community facilities or building new facilities for community benefit.

Mr Greenwich said:

“The Community Building Partnership grants can provide important funding for the organisations that support Sydney’s diverse communities.”

“Previous grants have been provided to organisations including working with homeless people, community centres and community theatre groups”

Applications close 18 July. Details:

    Hi Justin
    These grants don’t apply for this situation. The lanes you refer to are set by councils, so contact the City of Sydney about the specific locations you would like them to remove the lines. Some of them date back to before the cycleways were begun and policies have changed… tel 9265 9333.

    Hi Alex, the non “bike lane” pained in the door zones in Surry Hills are a real menace. They encourage cars to force you to ride in this very dangerous zone so they can pass when there are vehicles coming in the opposite direction. The COS ride with confidence course encourages you to take the lane an not ride in the door zone. I have had cars toot their horns or “punish pass” me if I dare not ride in these door zones even when I have kids on the back. Is it too late to apply for a grant to get a community group together to paint out these lanes?
