Funding Announced: 2019 Community Building Partnership Program

The electorate of Manly has today secured almost $300,000 in funding for a total of 14 projects through the NSW Government’s 2019 Community Building Partnership Program.

Member for Manly James Griffin said the NSW Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including Seaforth Bowling, Balgowlah Boys High School and Lifeline Northern Beaches in Balgowlah.

“This is a difficult time in NSW, but the community can be confident that work continues around Manly and the Northern Beaches on projects big and small,” Mr Griffin said.

“This funding will directly help create a more sustainable community with improved facilities from schools to sporting clubs.

“I am proud to fund not one but four organisations with solar panels or integrated solar-battery systems to drive down emissions and reduce costs.”
