FOUR RIVERSTONE ELECTORATE ORGANISATIONS TO SHARE $243,305 OF NSW GOVERNMENT FUNDING
Written on the 5 September 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP, announced today that four local community organisations in the Riverstone electorate have been successful in the public vote to receive NSW Government grants from the 'My Community Project' under the NSW Generations Fund; sharing a total of $243,305.
Riverstone High School will receive $79,251 for an outdoor gym. The Ponds School will receive $86,554 for outdoor Sun Safe Shade Sails with support from the Blacktown Ponds Lions Club. The Riverstone Girl Guides will receive $50,000 to support their local community focused education program. Open Local will receive $27,500 to develop a FixMyStreet app to make it easier to report issues in the local area.
"I congratulate these four organisations in winning community support for their applications. Without this type of funding supporting from the NSW Liberal Government these projects which will benefit the local community greatly would most likely not occur," said Mr Conolly.
The NSW Government is investing a total of $24.68 million in projects across NSW to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities. My Community Project is made possible by the NSW Generations Fund. The fund helps keep the state's debt at a sustainable level, while sharing the benefits of its returns with the people of NSW by funding community projects.
