Two community projects are benefitting to the tune of $326,204 from the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the Gosford-based Regional Youth Support Services (RYSS) would receive $200,000, and Gosford Tennis Centre would benefit from $126,204.
“RYSS do an outstanding job at providing support and care to young people on the Central Coast and later this year they will be relocating to another facility in Gosford,” Mr Crouch said.
“This funding boost will assist with the purchase and development of a new shopfront which is set to contain youth-friendly spaces, meeting and workshop rooms, an exhibition area and space for the case managers.
“At Gosford Tennis Centre, the 50-year-old lighting system will be replaced with new LED lighting that consume only a fraction of the energy of the old lights.
“This facility often plays host to interstate tournaments as well as regular training squads and practice sessions, so the new high-quality lights will be a very welcome boost for the Club’s 2,000 members.”
In the latest round of funding, $4 million in grants have been awarded to 32 projects across NSW in the categories of sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and essential community infrastructure.
Applications for the next round of funding open on Monday, 21 September 2020.
