The electorate of Barwon has today secured $399,296 in funding for a total of 22 projects through the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.

Member for Barwon, Roy Butler said, “the State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities, with building upgrades, solar panels, covered outdoor areas and a defibrillator, just to name a few.

This is fantastic news for Barwon.

The funding is aimed at the many and varied community organisations. From grassroots community and sports groups to councils and local branches of larger well-known charitable institutions and will result in a great range of cultural, educational, safety and even health benefits for the community.

I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference in Western NSW.”
