CMAP operates under the provisions of Community Builders (FACS).


The target group for Community Builders is communities in NSW, especially the disadvantaged members of those communities. This may include groups of participants who live in the same place or area or participants who share a common identity feature.


Funded activities align with the Community Skills Development Service Model. CMAP provides information, training and mentoring to members of the community and community organisations, so that access to and knowledge of community resources is improved.


Community Skills Development includes:


The building of skills which assist disadvantaged members of communities to access community resources and networks and enhance their connectedness to their community;


Training in leadership to increase resilience and access to resources for those communities;


Training and mentoring for individuals and groups in how to establish and run community organisations e.g. basic governance for community groups, running meetings, incorporation, financial management.



The CMAP mission is to strengthen the viability of communities by enhancing the management capacity and financial stability of the nonprofits, individuals and organisations that support those communities. Non-profit organisations continue to meet the critical needs of our most vulnerable citizens. In turn, CMAP continues to meet the vital management needs of these same nonprofits.
