Local community organisations have secured a total of $400,000 in funding across 15 projects thanks to the NSW Government’s 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, said that this funding will assist our local community organisations to access world-class equipment and facilities.
“Community organisations have always, and will always be the lifeblood of the St George region and this funding will ensure that more local residents have access to the equipment and infrastructure they need to succeed,” Mr Coure said.
“This funding will also encourage more people to get involved with their favourite community organisations and deliver positive social outcomes for local residents and their families.”
