New Social Housing Community Improvement Funding For Young And Temora

Victor P Taffa

Member for Cootamundra Katrina Hodgkinson announced today that two projects in the electorate will receive funding under the New South Wales Government’s (NSW) Social Housing Community Improvement Fund.

Rotaract Park Playground in Young is set to receive a $50,000 make-over to create a functional and attractive open space for the community. Also, Temora is to receive $40,000 for the construction and landscaping of the Trungley Road footpath between Kitchener Road and Beattie Street to provide safe pedestrian access.

 

 

“Last year community groups, councils, charities and private organisations were encouraged to put forward projects that would help improve our local area under the NSW Government’s Social Housing Community Improvement Fund (SHCIF).” Ms. Hodgkinson said.

“I’m thrilled that Young and Temora were successful and will proceed with these projects.”

“The NSW Government promised to build stronger, more vibrant social housing communities and we’re delivering on that today with this project.”

“This is all about creating communities that people are proud to call home, and I am looking forward to seeing the projects come to life.” Ms. Hodgkinson said.

The Rotaract Park upgrade and Trungley Road footpath construction are among more than 120 projects across NSW that will benefit from $4.2 Million in funding through the NSW Government’s Social Housing Community Improvement Fund (SHCIF).

The SHCIF is a three-year commitment to build stronger social housing communities through improvements to fencing, lighting, disability access and a whole range of community projects including playgrounds, communal gardens, basketball courts and skate ramps.

“We said we wanted partnerships and for the community to bring its ideas and this has certainly been delivered in Young and Temora.” Ms. Hodgkinson said.

“We’ve made a good start. The next round of grants will open in April and I encourage everyone to consider applying for them.”
