Local organisations on the Northern Beaches can now apply for funding to support local community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Manly James Griffin said today.
Mr Griffin said $12.5 million is available in 2019/20 for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.
The popular beach volleyball tournament Volleyfest will be back on the golden sands of Manly next year.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the NSW Government will support the 2020 international event as the country’s best volleyballers build-up to the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Court cases on the Northern Beaches that require legal aid will be finalised more efficiently and effectively with the NSW Government investing an additional $88 million in Legal Aid NSW, driving a fairer and more efficient justice system.
Member for Manly James Griffin said this new funding will support economically disadvantaged members of the community accessing free legal help.
