GALAMBILA GRANT IS GREAT FOR OUR COMMUNITY

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said a $183,600 NSW Government grant will help Galambila Aboriginal Health Service with its important outreach work in our community.

Mr Singh said he’s delighted Galambila is a beneficiary from Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

“This funding is for Galambila’s Aboriginal Community Controlled Youth Wellbeing & Development Program,” Mr Singh said.

“This is fantastic news because of the positive difference it will make to the lives of our local young people.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said in the past five years the Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.

“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing through sport or community events,” Mr Toole said.

“It’s the little things that make a big difference to the way we all work, live, play and do business, and the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government are delivering the projects that make a difference to everyday life right across regional NSW, from Byron Bay to Bega to Broken Hill.”

Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund will support local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
