Grants worth a total of $400,000 have been awarded to 11 community organisations in the Cronulla electorate through the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.

The grants will go towards better facilities for a range of organisations from schools to disability and social services.

I thank the hardworking groups for their enthusiasm in preparing applications for the program this year; we continue to have many great volunteers in the Shire who want to make a difference for the community. I look forward to seeing the benefits of the successful projects.
