An additional $100,000 boost for local community infrastructure projects was announced through the 2014 Community Building Partnership from the NSW Budget handed down last week.

The Community Building Partnership program enables community groups and local councils to build, refurbish or enhance community infrastructure, while providing jobs for local tradespeople in our electorate.

This program is important to community organisations who rely on funding like this and this announcement shows we are listening to the community.
