The State Electorate of Cessnock has secured $300,000.00 in funding for a total of 23 projects through the NSW Government’s 2020 Community Building Partnership Program.
The Community Building Partnership Program was established in 2009 by the then Labor Government and has provided funding to hundreds of community groups, sporting clubs and councils across NSW to build or upgrade local facilities.
State Member for the Electorate of Cessnock, Clayton Barr, MP said the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities. See attached list containing full details of the projects that have been funded.
“This is fantastic news for the Cessnock Electorate, this grassroots funding will directly help to create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social and recreational outcomes,” Mr Barr said.
“It is always great to see funding being injected into our community. Seeing our local community groups and organisations completing the projects funded by the Community Building Partnership Program is always a highlight.”
“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.”
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 15,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
Applications for the 2021 program will open in early 2021.
