Funding Support for our Coasts and Estuaries

Parliamentary Secretary for the Environment and Member for Manly James Griffin has today called on councils to apply for funding under the NSW Government's Coastal and Estuary Grants Program to assist with planning and managing our region’s coastline.

“Our coastline and estuaries are critical environments that support a huge variety of native flora and fauna, in addition to being popular places for recreation,” Mr Griffin said.

Boost for Domestic and Family Violence Services

Northern Beaches domestic and family violence services experiencing increased demand as a result of COVID-19 can now apply for a share of $9 million in Federal Government funding.

Member for Manly James Griffin said the COVID-19 Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence Grant program aimed to ensure more victim-survivors can access services at this crucial time.

“Many domestic violence services have moved quickly to innovate and adapt their supports during the pandemic – when women and children may have struggled to access help,” Mr Griffin said.
