Applications for recreational fishing and camping facilities grants closing soon
LOCAL councils across NSW are being invited to apply for $2.1 million in grants under the NSW Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program.
The program is designed to support local councils to deliver new or renewed infrastructure directly related to recreational fishing, boating and camping.
Examples of eligible infrastructure projects include:
- fishing platforms
- fish cleaning stations
- boat ramps
- marine rescue facilities
- toilet blocks
- camping facilities
- other infrastructure directly associated with recreational fishing, boating or camping.
Improving facilities and access to recreational fishing, boating and camping areas will provide locals and visitors alike with better opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors by camping and fishing in our rivers, lakes and around the coast.
Applications for these grants are open now and close at 5pm on 31 January 2022.
The Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program is funded by the Australian government and administered by the NSW government.
