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. Grant funding of up to $330,000 is available for every electoral district.
The closing date for the grant program is 5pm, Friday 15 June 2018.
