Comments attributable to Paul Scully MP:

 

“The Community Building Partnership program is a fantastic opportunity for local community and sporting groups in my electorate to get a share of $300,000 to help some projects get off the ground.

 

“Many local groups have big plans and spend a lot of time fundraising and projects take many years.

 

“I encourage all not-for-profit community and sport groups in the Wollongong electorate to start thinking about whether they have a suitable project which may be eligible for a share of the $300,000 on offer under the 2017 Community Building Partnership program.

 

“The CBP, an initiative of the former NSW Labor Government in 2010, is growing in popularity within the community.”
