The State Government last week announced yet another successful grant funding application for the Doncaster Hill Civic Precinct development, with the confirmation that Manningham Council would receive $500,000 for the construction of a Children's Centre in the new community centre.

The grant was awarded as part of the State Government's Children's Capital Program 2008/09, which helps fund well progressed strategic plans for significant redevelopment of community-based childhood education and care facilities.

This announcement brings the total State and Federal Government funding for the Civic Precinct project close to $10 million, with the outcome of two further applications worth $2.25 million soon to be announced.
