Local groups 'should apply' for State grants
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is encouraging local groups to apply for the NSW Government's Community Building Partnership grant.
She said all eligible organisations should apply to ensure that our community receives the funding that it needs.
"Applications are now open for community-based infrastructure projects that seek to promote greater community participation and inclusion.
"This year $400,000 is on offer for the Gosford electorate," she said.
"The grants are for not-for-profit community organisations, schools and local councils.
"In last year's round, we saw much-needed funding provided to key community groups to be able to deliver their services.
"The Umina Beach Surf Life Saving Club for example received over $25,000 in funding to make repairs and maintenance to the site to ensure the safety of many of our locals who frequently visit the building."
Ms Tesch stressed the importance for eligible applicants to get their applications in well before the deadline of June 10.
"Get your applications in because these grants unfortunately are limited and in high demand."
