Peninsula groups benefit from Gosford electorate grants

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has announced $400,000 in community grants for the Gosford electorate.

Seven Peninsula groups were among the grant recipients.

Central Coast Outrigger Canoe Club received a grant for a new ultra-light OC6 canoe.

Southern and Ettalong United Football Club received a grant for the installation of a disabled toilet.

Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club for the replacement of roller doors.

Grants went to parents' groups at Woy Woy South Public School for an outdoor area revamp and at Umina Beach Public School for outdoor lighting.

Naughty Noodle Fun Haus received a grant for community infrastructure repair.

A grant was awared to Everglades Country Club for an alfresco weatherproof shade sail installation.

Ms Tesch said: "Community grants are open every year."

Under the Community Building Partnership program, State Members of Parliament make funding recommendations to their Premier for projects within their electorate.

The Local Member assesses eligible applications against four equally-weighted assessment criteria: Enhancing facilities, meeting community needs, increasing community participation and the organisation's capacity.

"If your organisation has a suggestion, please stay tuned for more details from my office," Ms Tesch said.

She said details about the 2023 application process would be available in April and May.
