The Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP today announced that 13 grant applications would receive a share of $300,000 total for community infrastructure committed to rebuilding NSW and creating local jobs.


The funding has been provided under the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program.


Tanya Davies said she was delighted the NSW Premier Mike Baird announced the roll out of these 13 local projects as part of over 1500 throughout NSW.


“There was a strong level of interest from the community for the available funds, with almost 3,000 applications received across NSW.


“Local businesses and construction jobs will benefit from this community infrastructure program, as will families and residents in the local community,” Tanya Davies said.


“The NSW Government is getting on with the job ensuring a stronger and better Mulgoa electorate as part of our plan to rebuild NSW.


7 of the 13 local projects to receive funding from the NSW Government are:

  1. Glenmore Park Football Club = $50,000 for Ched Towns Reserve drainage,
  2. Riding For The Disabled (NSW) Nepean Centre = $40,865 for upgrades and construction of accessible indoor arena spectator area,
  3. St Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, St Marys = $35,000 for replacing termite damaged roof and ceiling of church hall,
  4. Penrith City Softball Association = $28,679 for lights for batting cages,
  5. St Clair Hawks Cricket Club = $27,542 for Cricket Nets Upgrade at Cook and Banks Oval, St Clair,
  6. Wallacia Public School P&C Association = $16,977 for LED School Sign, and
  7. St Clair United Soccer Club = $15,000 for turfing and watering systems for soccer fields.

“Since 2011 it’s been a privilege to support community projects that make a real difference to our community in the Mulgoa electorate, worth $1 million.


“I look forward to seeing the benefits of these local projects announced today for Mulgoa as they are undertaken and more importantly put into use.


“Mike Baird and the NSW Government understand the importance of community infrastructure grants while we roll out a record $61.5 billion on infrastructure over 4 years on projects. The NSW Liberals & Nationals also have a clear plan to unlock an additional $20 billion for infrastructure if re-elected in March 2015 for schools, hospitals, public transport, sports and culture, roads and regional water that will rebuild NSW.” Tanya Davies said.
