Member for Shellharbour, Anna Watson MP, has today announced that 12 local community groups in the Shellharbour electorate will benefit from a share of $300,000 in funding as part of the 2016 Community Building Partnerships (CBP) Program.

“I wish to congratulate all of the successful applicants and am once again thrilled to see this funding go towards such impressive and worthwhile projects within the electorate.

“This program, established by the former State Labor Government in 2009, continues to deliver much needed funding to local not-for-profit groups for important community infrastructure.

“Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful community organisations that do such important work for our local community. It is great to be able to give back and see their projects come to fruition.

“I am impressed with the host of applications received for this year’s program and have recommended funding for as many projects as possible across my electorate.

“I trust that these projects, once completed, will be of great benefit to our local community.
