The electorate of Manly has today secured almost $330,000 in funding for a total of thirteen projects through the NSW Government’s 2018 Community Building Partnership Program.


Member for Manly James Griffin said the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including surf and sporting clubs, local schools and community organisations:


“Strong economic management and strong economy ensures we are in a position to invest in these important local projects, such as the Tibetan refugee driving program to a new outdoor LED scoreboard for Manly Oval,” Mr Griffin said.


“Funding for this grassroots projects such as this will directly help to create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with a variety of positive social and recreation outcomes.
