NINETEEN projects across the Oxley electorate, including the fit-out of a new community gym facility at the new Mid North Coast High Performance Sports Centre, have been given a boost thanks to funding for grassroots projects.
Member for Oxley Melinda Pavey said $400,000 for 19 local projects has been funded through the NSW government's 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.
"This is fantastic news for our region," Ms Pavey said. "This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.
"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 the area."
The successful Oxley projects are as follows:
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.
