Milton-Ulladulla is the big winner in a $300,000 grant funding for South Coast local projects as part of the NSW government’s Community Building Program.
The Marine Rescue Service at Ulladulla and Kioloa, Milton Library, Milton Ulladulla Little Athletics and Touched by Olivia Foundation will receive more than $100,000 to upgrade their services and infrastructure.
South Coast MP Shelley Hancock is delighted by the benefits our local organisations will receive.
“This state government funding aims to create more vibrant and inclusive communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes,” she said.
“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver new infrastructure for community groups, and will help pay for much-needed improvements to sporting and community based facilities.”
Marine Rescue Service at Ulladulla and Kioloa will receive $15,000 and $8,000 respectively to fund security upgrades and an air berth for a rescue vessel.
The Milton Library will receive $40,000 to refurnish and reconfigure community access and Milton Ulladulla Little Athletics can now complete its dual long jump pit with a grant of $15,370.
The big winner is the Touched by Olivia Foundation, which received $50,000 to co-create an inclusive play space at Livvie’s Place in Mollymook,
Livvie’s Place is a community hub where people of all ages and abilities can play side by side regardless of differences.
“I congratulate all those organisations that were successful in their application and am pleased this funding will help community groups make a positive difference in the local area,” Mrs Hancock said.
