Community Building Partnership program

Eight South Coast organisations have secured grant funding for a total of $300,000 as part of the NSW Government’s 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

The NSW Government has committed funds to new community infrastructure projects that will enhance much needed local facilities.

Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock said she was pleased to secure this State Government funding on behalf of the local community.

“The funding will aim to create more vibrant and inclusive communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” Mrs Hancock said.

“Each project and organisation to receive funds are invaluable to the fabric of their local communities.

“I’m thrilled they will now be able to carry out necessary improvements, upgrades or refurbishments to provide better amenities and services.

“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver vital new infrastructure,” Mrs Hancock said.

Mrs Hancock congratulated all those organisations that were successful in their application and is pleased this funding will help community groups make a positive difference in the local area.

The successful projects on the South Coast for the Milton Ulladulla are:

  • $57,390 to help Milton Ulladulla Men’s Shed complete stage two of their new facility;
  • $14,292 to install new spectator seating and interchange benches at the Ulladulla AFL Oval, home of the Ulladulla Dockers AFC;
  • $29,500 to the Ulladulla Men’s Shed to complete stage three of the extension of the existing shed, including internal fit out and equipment installation;
  • $30,000 to allow Shoalhaven City Council to refurbish the Ulladulla Civic Centre amenities;
  • $30,000 to construct a clubhouse for the Milton Ulladulla Model Railway Club and the South Coast Railway History Museum;
  • $50,000 to the Red Head Villages Association to construct a shared user pathway to connect local villages and improve pedestrian safety.
