Thirteen (13) Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) clubs have been shortlisted for the NSW Government – My Community Grants which provide the opportunity for the locals to help decide which projects get funding in your area.
My Community Project will fund projects in each NSW electorate to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities that live there. It might be new playground equipment or sports facilities for the kids, paths or ramps to improve access, an art installation to rejuvenate an empty space or a community transport service.
