Community funding available
Under last year's Community Development Support Expenditure Scheme (CDSE), $55,657 went to 17 local groups.
Among them was the Coffs Harbour PCYC, which received $1260.
This was used to buy musical instruments and equipment to support programs for disadvantaged youth attending the centre.
"The Coffs Harbour PCYC is very grateful for the support of the local clubs in approving our application for the CDSE grants. It has made an important contribution to the club and helped enhance the musical skills and self-esteem of the young people who come to the club," PCYC programs manager Paul McAra said.
The six participating clubs are Coffs Ex-Services Club, Coffs Harbour Catholic Club, Sawtell RSL Club, Park Beach Bowling Club, Woolgoolga Bowling Club and Woolgoolga RSL Club.
A committee supported by the Coffs Harbour City Council administers the CDSE scheme on behalf of ClubsNSW.
Funding applications should be sent directly to the participating clubs.
The closing date is June 30.
