Funding Boost: Local organisations to receive vital new equipment.
By ANNA USHER
Money for new boating gear, solar panels, acoustic insulation and school band instruments are just some of the items to make the list in this year’s community funding.
Member for North Shore Felicity Wilson said the State Government cash will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including upgrades to buildings inside and out, providing play and fitness equipment, and delivering new supplies to sports and music organisations.
“This is fantastic news for our community with funding helping local organisations from school and educational institutions to sporting clubs, musical groups, and religious organisations,” Ms Wilson said.
“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community by focusing on positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes.
“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for our community groups.”
The full list of successful projects in the local community for 2021 are:
