Applications open for Public Reserve Management Fund
PUBLIC reserve managers in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys are invited to apply for a share of $15 million available under the NSW Government's Public Reserves Management Fund Program (PRFM) to help improve and develop more public spaces.
Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis said the annual program of grants and loans assists public reserve managers to develop, maintain and protect important public assets including showgrounds and community halls, local parks and reserves and caravan parks.
"Whether it's having the day out at an event at your local showground, taking your kids to the local park or using the local community hall for a party, we all rely on these public spaces and have many fond memories using them," Mr Gulaptis said.
"We have some terrific public spaces in the Clarence and Richmond valleys and we want to make sure these important assets are up to scratch for years to come.
"Importantly, the program also supports regional economic growth in NSW, strengthens local communities and helps to protect our natural environment."
Applications close on April 8.
