$330,000 for Lake Macquarie community projects

19th November 2018

Member for Lake Macquarie Greg Piper has today announced that 21 community, sporting and cultural organisations in the Lake Macquarie electorate have been awarded grants to improve or construct facilities under the Community Building Partnership scheme.

Mr Piper said this year’s grants total $330,000.

“Community Building Partnership grants allow local organisations to build or improve facilities for their members and the communities they serve,” Mr Piper said.

“Almost 150 grants totalling more than $3.5 million collectively have been handed out in the Lake Macquarie electorate since the program began in 2009.”

“These small projects deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.”

Among the groups which made successful bids this year are Southern Lakes District Cricket Club which will receive funds for ground infrastructure upgrades, and Teralba Scouts which will be able to refurbish their hall’s kitchen.

Awaba Public School’s P&C Association will receive $20,000 for a new playground and shade installation at the school. South Cardiff Football Club will receive more than $35,000 for a wet weather disability path and field levelling, while Cardiff Bowling Club will receive $40,000 towards the replacement of a synthetic green.

A full list of this year’s grant recipients is included below.

Mr Piper urged any group wanting to know about next year’s round of grants to contact his office.

“I also run workshops each year which deal with fundraising and the writing of grant applications,” he said. “Please contact my office if you or your organisation would be interested in attending.”
