The electorate of Hawkesbury has secured grant funding of $200,000 for a total of 17 projects as part of the NSW Government’s 2016 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.
The NSW Government has committed funds to new community infrastructure projects that will enhance much needed local facilities. Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet said he was pleased to receive this State Government funding. The funding will aim to create more vibrant and inclusive communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver new infrastructure for schools and community groups, and will help pay for much-needed improvements to local sports facilities, parks and clubs.”
Mr Perrottet congratulates all those organisations that were successful in their application and is pleased this funding will help community groups make a positive difference in the local area.
