2013 Community Building Partnership Grants Announced For Mulgoa

Wednesday December 4, 2013

Tanya Davies MP, State Member for Mulgoa, today announced that 10 community-based organisations in her electorate will share $200,000 in NSW Government grant funding to be used for building and improvement of local community facilities.

This grant funding has been provided under the NSW Government’s 2013 Community Building Partnership program. 

Tanya Davies was delighted that NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell announced the roll out of over 1,315 community projects across NSW as a part of $90 million allocated to the program over four years.

“Building and restoring local infrastructure as well as supporting local construction jobs and businesses are a welcome boost in enhancing local investment in our community” Tanya Davies said.

The NSW Government is getting on with the job to rebuild NSW by investing almost $60 billion for infrastructure across the State over the next four years to fix the infrastructure backlog left by the previous NSW Labor Government.

“While we are delivering major infrastructure projects, we understand the importance of local community infrastructure and benefits for local businesses as well.” Tanya Davies said

“I look forward to seeing the benefits to our communities as projects are undertaken and put into use across my electorate of Mulgoa” Tanya Davies said.

The 10 projects to receive funding in the electorate of Mulgoa are:

  • Blackwell Public School in St Clair will receive much needed funds for redeveloping the basketball/netball courts on the school grounds.
