For the Heathcote electorate I have secured $298,452 in funding for a total of 16 projects through the NSW Government’s 2020 Community Building Partnership Program.

The State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities.

This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social and recreational outcomes.

I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area.
