Nine groups granted a total of almost $200,000

Nine Peninsula organisations have been granted a total of almost $200,000 under the Community Building Partnership program.

The largest grant was $100,000 made to Umina Beach Men's Shed to build permanent premises.

St Luke's Anglican Church in Woy Woy was granted $25,000 for a kitchen upgrade in the church hall.

The Women's Health Centre in Woy Woy was granted $15,000 for information and communication technology, while St Vincent de Paul Society will receive the same amount to refresh of its Woy Woy Charity Shop.

Peninsula Environment Group was granted $12,153 for security improvements at Woy Woy Peninsula Community Garden.

Umina Surf Club, Woy Woy Public School and the PCYC in Umina each will receive $10,000.

The Surf Life Saving Club will use the money to buy a new inflatable rescue boat.

The school's Parents and Citizens Association spend the money on an outside play area.

The PCYC will upgrade its garden.

Mingaletta Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation at Umina will receive $2500 for speakers at the community centre.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said the grants reflected community infrastructure needs.

"These community organisations do so much to support all of our locals through the good and bad times and they are very deserving recipients," she said.

Ms Tesch said the Community Building Partnership program was initiated by the then Labor Government in 2009.

Ms Tesch said the next round of Community Building Partnerships funding would open on May 4.
