The electorate of Orange has secured $299,829 in funding for a total of 20 projects through the NSW Government’s 2020 Community Building Partnership Program.
Phil Donato MP, said the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities.
“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes. It’s great to be able to do my part in assisting our local region.”
“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 in the area,” Phil said.
Some of the successful applicants for projects in the Forbes Shire were the Eugowra Community Children’s Centre Inc. including a renovation of the old community hall to expand Eugowra Children’s Centre, Bogan Gate Golf Club Co-op Ltd for new solar panels, as well as the Forbes Pastoral Agriculture for a Ladies auxiliary kitchen and lawnmower.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 15,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
Applications for the 2021 Program open in early 2021. Visit www.nsw.gov.au/cbp for more information.
