The Coffs Coast has secured $400,000 in funding for a total of 16 projects through the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.
Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said these State Government funds will help many of our local organisations to deliver much-needed improvements to facilities which are much-loved by our community, or to buy new equipment.
“This is fantastic news for Coffs Coast residents,” Mr Singh said.
“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
“I congratulate all of the organisations which were successful in their application and I look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in our area.”
