Funding Announced - 2019 Community Building Partnership Program

The State Electorate of Holsworthy has secured close to $300,000 in funding, for a total of 17 projects, through the NSW Government’s 2019 Community Building Partnership Program.

State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons said the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including bathroom, playground and kitchen upgrades to name a few.

“This is fantastic news for our local area.

“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” Ms Gibbons said.

“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area.”

Now a decade old, the Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 13,800 community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Applications for the 2020 Program will open in May.
