Community Building Partnership Programme

Exciting to see successful grant applications by Dungog Shire Community Centre, Clarence Town Bowling Sport and Recreation Club, Dungog Common, Dungog CWA and Dungog District Chamber of Commerce.

Unfortunately, our grant amount fell below our amount applied for. The application was for large flag poles along Dowling Street to advertise events and community celebrations. Nevertheless, it is a win and we intend to now work out a way to raise the further funds and we will make this project happen.

Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter today announced that the Upper Hunter Electorate would benefit from grant funding to the total of $300,000 for a total of 27 local projects as part of the NSW Government’s 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

Mr Johnsen said the NSW Government has committed funds to new community infrastructure projects that will enhance much needed local facilities.

“As a member of this Government, I am pleased our Upper Hunter Electorate communities are to receive this important State Government funding,” Mr Johnsen said.

“The funding will aim to create more vibrant and inclusive local communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“Some of the key projects which successfully obtained a grant included funding for Dungog Information and Neighbourhood Centre, for Denman Junior Cricket Association, and for the Quirindi Uniting Church Community Garden, to name just a few from the list of successful applicants from across the Electorate.*

‘This grassroots funding will directly benefit our local communities and will deliver vital new infrastructure and help pay for much-needed improvements to local sports facilities, schools and parks and community organisations. 

“I would like to warmly congratulate all those organisations that were successful in their application for this year’s round of funding, and I am really pleased this funding will help community groups make a positive difference in our local areas,” Mr Johnsen concluded.
