Local organisations across the Central Coast are encouraged to apply for funding to support community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the impacts of COVID-19 were ongoing, and support for struggling community organisations remained a priority.

Infrastructure Grants can be used toward the costs of construction, alteration, renovation, completion and fit-out of buildings and community infrastructure in the following categories:
