Lithgow Information and Neighbourhood Centre’s newly renovated facility will be further improved by the addition of solar panels funded by a NSW Government Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant of $27,000.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole visited the centre to deliver the good news and congratulated the hard working staff and volunteers for the work they do.
“The CBP fund focuses on those organisations that make big differences in their communities,” Mr Toole said.
“The work that LINC does is so valuable to the Lithgow community. I can think of no better recipient for this funding.”
LINC also hosts a wide range of programs for the community in the Lithgow and are always looking at ways they can assist people in need.
The new solar panel system will assist with reducing running costs of these programs.
This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive financial and environmental outcomes.
“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area,” Mr Toole said.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 18,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
Applications for the 2023 Program open in May 2023.
