PCYC big winner in Community Building Partnerships
Maitland PCYC will undertake $75,000 of upgrades to its car park after being successful in its bid for a 2018 Community Building Partnership grant.
The work will see boundary fencing, signage and access controls installed at the James Street car park.
The organisation was one of 12 to share in $330,000 under this year’s program, which provides a set amount of funding to each electorate to assist with infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental or recreational outcomes.
“This program allows these organisations the opportunity to receive state government funding and undertake projects they normally wouldn’t have the money to bring to reality,” Member for Maitland Jenny Aitchison said.
“To all of Maitland’s applicants I say a big thank you for taking the time to nominate your project.
“There was strong a field of projects submitted and I look forward to seeing our community’s nominations in 2019.”
