Monday, 19 November 2018

The Davidson electorate has secured $330,000 in funding for a total of 13 projects through the NSW Government’s 2018 Community Building Partnership Program.

Jonathan O’Dea, Member for Davidson said the funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including playgrounds, community centres and sports grounds.

“This grassroots funding is fantastic news for Davidson. It will directly help to create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“The NSW Government’s strong economic management ensures we are in a position to invest in these important local projects,” Mr O’Dea said.

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