The Community Building Partnership allows local community groups to apply for State funding to build infrastructure projects. Here Clayton is pictured at the recent opening of the renovated workshop at Cessnock Men’s Shed and Community Garden.
This year’s funding has been spread over twenty community groups for a variety of simple projects which they would otherwise struggle to afford. For example, the Abermain-Weston Rugby League Club received $11,736 to upgrade their scoreboard and bench seating at Howe Park, Cessnock District Historical and Family History Society received $5,018 to install a compactor at the local library and Sugar Valley Neighbourhood Centre received $16,390 to turn an old toilet block into an interview room.
The Community Building Partnership generally opens for applications around September. All eligible local community groups are encouraged to apply.
Applications close on July 18, click here for more including application and criteria.
