Two projects in Manilla will share $11,736 in State Government funding under the Community Building Partnership program Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson announced today.


Mr Anderson said the Manilla Men’s Shed has successfully obtained $9,236 to install a solar power system, while Tamworth Regional Council has received $2,500 to renovate the Manilla Visitor Information outlet.


“This is a great investment from the NSW Government which will help reduce energy costs for the Men’s Shed,” Mr Anderson said.


“Community groups ensure that our region keeps ticking along which is why we support them with these one off grants.


“The funding to renovate the information outlet will help aid a growing tourism market in Manilla and provide a fresh welcome to those visitors.”


The groups are two of 18 in the Tamworth electorate that shared in a total of $300,000.


“Each year we encourage community groups to get their applications in because it’s a great opportunity to see more funding come into our region.


“While not every project can get funding I encourage groups to get their applications in so that they have the best chance at receiving a grant.


“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver vital new infrastructure and help pay for much-needed improvements.”
