Supporting Regional Communities

25-Sep-2017

The North-West community will benefit from three key funding commitments under the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
 
Liberal Senator for Tasmania Stephen Parry congratulated those involved in three successful projects which will receive funding
 
·         $80,000 for Cradle Coast Authority to develop its Regional Futures Plan
 
·         $41,250 towards The Unconformity arts project for remote western Tasmania
 
·         $19,400 for Waratah Wynyard Council to assess and grow education opportunities

 
“These projects are further ways to help grow our local region both economically and socially,” Senator Parry said.
 
“The projects we have seen funded today will help grow our economy through Cradle Coast Authority’s Regional Futures Plan, help attract visitors to the West Coast through The Unconformity arts festival inspired by geology, and assess education needs throughout Waratah Wynyard and Circular Head.
 
“Without the Building Better Regions Fund, community investment projects can often struggle to get funding, so it’s a credit to all those who have worked hard behind the scenes to develop quality applications for this funding round.”
 
The Building Better Regions Fund Community Investment Stream is investing $6.9 million in community projects throughout regional Australia.
 
It aims to build the kinds of regional communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to.
 
The entire Building Better Regions Fund is investing $500 million to foster economic growth in rural, regional, and remote communities.
