The Port Macquarie electorate has today secured almost $300,000 in funding for a total of 16 projects through the NSW Government’s 2023 Community Building Partnership Program.

Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams said, "The Community Building Partnerships grants directly benefit our community, often creating local jobs and increasing business opportunities while at the same time enhancing local investment across the electorate."

"The State Government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including St Thomas’ Anglican Church, Kendall Men’s Shed and Coopernook Public School.

"This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” Mrs Williams said.

"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."
