NSW Treasurer Mike Baird has confirmed that over $90 million will be allocated in the budget to continue the Community Building Partnership program over the next four years.

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.
 
We received over $1.3 million in requests for community funding for only a pool of $300,000 in grants available.
 
The money will go towards 13 different infrastructure and building works for community groups across the electorate.
