Cessnock City Council is proud to announce 26 local community based organisations have been successful in the latest Community Dollar for Dollar grant scheme, totalling more than $67,500.  

The Grant Scheme is about Council supporting community, cultural, sporting and environmental projects that improve and enhance community life across our local government area.  

This year, there were a number of deserving recipients in each category including the Wollombi Sculpture in the Vineyards event, Early Links Inclusion Support Service for music therapy, Branxton Community Hall for the installation of solar panels and Kurri Weston Cricket Club to upgrade the wicket square.  

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent congratulated all recipients and said this funding is so important for our local community-based organisations.  

“This annual grants program has supported some exciting initiatives in the past and this year is no different.”  

“It is a wonderful opportunity for these community organisations to get things done that they might not have been able to without the extra funding boost,” added Cr Pynsent.
