$3.5 Million On Offer For Local Projects

Local community organisations are being urged to apply for funding for infrastructure projects and programs, with the NSW Government allocating $3.5 million to the Central Coast region.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said applications will be accepted from community organisations, Central Coast Council and Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council.

“A total of $3,537,518 has been specially allocated to our community through Round Four of the Stronger Country Communities Fund,” Mr Crouch said.

“50 per cent of this funding will be focused on female sports facilities and programs, to encourage greater participation and level the playing field for women and girls across all levels and codes of sport.

“Applications are also being accepted for a range of projects that improve local amenities, boost community morale and improve health and wellbeing.

“This is in addition to $9.9 million from the Stronger Country Communities Fund already delivered to the Central Coast for 22 projects over the past three years.”

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said providing facilities, particularly women’s changerooms, ensures all female athletes are supported from grassroots to elite level to participate in the widest range of sports, including once male dominated codes.

“Purpose-built facilities should be standard and not an exception, and better amenities will help address this barrier and encourage girls and women to participate in the sports and activities they enjoy and want to play,” Mrs Taylor said.

Applications for Round Four of the Stronger Country Communities Fund close on Friday, 25 June.
