The electorate of Orange has secured $399,300 in funding for a total of seventeen projects through the NSW Government’s 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.
Member for Orange, Phil Donato MP said the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including an amenities block refurbishment at the Spring Hill Recreation Ground, an expansion of the school to work program in Trundle and the purchase of a driving simulator in Parkes for the delivery of road safety education.
“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in our region,” Mr Donato said.
Forbes Polo Club Inc. was one of the successful applicants gaining funding for a vital equipment upgrade. The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 16,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
In 2022, there is $400,000 to allocate in each electorate. Applications for the 2022 Program open in early 2022.
