JNA JUMPS FOR JOY WITH FUNDING ANNOUNCED
Member for Monaro John Barilaro today met with the Jindabyne Netball Association’s committee and players of all ages to present the club with $5,000 in funding from the NSW Government.
“The JNA is supported by parents, volunteers and coaches, and I am so proud that the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is backing this community club with important funding,” Mr Barilaro said.
“This funding will allow the Jindabyne Netball Association to purchase new equipment and uniforms for the teams, meaning all players and their families will reap the benefits.
“Sport is the lifeblood of the Monaro and the NSW Government knows just how important it is to invest in local sport and deliver for our clubs.”
Mr Barilaro said the project was one of 831 that have received funding as part of the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.
“This grassroots program allows us to focus on what is really important to our communities and support our local clubs and teams,” he said.
“We want to see participation rates improve across the state and this funding will help this to happen.”
“Sport has many proven health, social and economic outcomes and I encourage eligible clubs to apply for a grant under the next round of funding.”
Examples of eligible projects under the next round of funding include upgrades to local amenities or improvements to access to facilities, training programs and community events.
