Program grants

OATLEY MP Mark Coure is urging community groups to act quickly to apply for the 2013 Community Building Partnership Program grants. Applications close July 31. The state government program provides funding for local community infrastructure projects that benefit local communities.

Last year 1235 received funding including Penshurst Presbyterian Church for a new sign board, Mortdale Community Services for new playground equipment, St George Men's Shed for the installation of air conditioning and the Resourceful Australian Indian Network for a new access ramp for the aged.
