Tanilba Bay Public School P&C Association will receive $18,569 to build a community and learning area.

Kate Washington MP told News Of The Area, “I’m proud to be able to support these incredible local community groups with this grassroots funding, which will deliver new community infrastructure in Medowie and Tanilba Bay and help pay for much-needed improvements to our local schools and sports clubs.”
“I congratulate all the successful recipients and I look forward to working alongside them to see this funding make
a positive difference to our local area.”
“Since I was elected, I’ve been pleased to provide more than $90,000 to local community groups in Medowie and
the Tilligerry Peninsula, and approximately $900,000 across Port Stephens to improve local infrastructure,” she said.
“There was a large amount of competition this year between lots of really worthwhile projects, and I look forward to
receiving even more applications next year,” she added.
An additional $242,195 was also awarded to thirteen other projects across Port Stephens, with a total of $300,000
awarded to sixteen projects within the electorate.
