Member for Sydney Clover Moore has welcomed 14 new capital grants for community benefit in the Sydney electorate.
"These grants through the Community Building Partnership will help with upgrade projects or equipment that benefits the community," Ms Moore said.
Over $500,000 has been allocated to build better facilities through:
- $30,000 for fitout of the Australian Seniors Computer Club, Pitt Street Sydney;
