Marshall urges grants

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has urged local councils and community groups to apply for the 2014 Community Building Partnership (CBP) grants when applications open later this month, on 19 June.
Mr Marshall said he was keen to continue the practice, already well established locally, of doubling or trebling the NSW Government’s $300,000 social infrastructure funding with local matching grants and in-kind support.
This year’s CBP funding has delivered:
GLEN INNES: $20,000 for Glen Innes Karinya Association to install drainage on the Karinya Home site; $9636 for Glen Innes Showground Trust to install new power boxes at the Glen Innes Showground; $12,000 for Glen Innes Rugby League Club to construct a new electronic scoreboard at Kerry Meade Park.
TENTERFIELD: $36,590 for Tenterfield and District Tennis Association to upgrade its hard court to synthetic grass.
