In 2017, Scouts Australia NSW had 52 projects approved through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Grants. $763,252 of funding supported capital works programs for Groups, Districts and Regions for much needed repairs to Scout properties. Scouts Australia NSW is grateful for this funding.
On 7 May 2018, the NSW government opened a new round (Round 10) of funding. This round of grants has now closed.
