Liverpool’s New Grants

admin News

Liverpool City Council has successfully secured two valuable State Government grants of
more than $70,000 through the NSW Community Building Partnerships program.

Liverpool City Mayor Ned Mannoun said that the funds would help Council towards providing
better social outcomes for our communities.

The grants included:
· $20,000 to upgrade the Wattle Grove Youth Centre’s kitchen (Menai)
· $50,400 to upgrade the Miller Community Centre for use as the new 2168
Employment and Education Centre.

“These upgrades will enhance our centres which will now be able to offer a better standard
of facilities for our community,” said the Mayor.

“In particular, the Miller Community Centre refurbishment will allow Council to house the
2168 Employment and Education Centre. This Centre will help disadvantaged community
members to access affordable training and get job ready, as well to accommodate a number
of agencies delivering outreach services.”

The NSW Community Building Partnerships program aims to provide improved community
infrastructure for the people of NSW and encourage the enhancement of local community
based activities that create more vibrant and inclusive communities.

“Council is committed to providing quality facilities that meet the needs of the residents,
sporting organisations and community groups, who regularly use these centers. These
grants will help us achieve that,” said Mayor Mannoun.
