Kadina locals will benefit from a project funded through the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey announced seven successful projects in Grey under the first round of the fund today and welcomed the Federal Government’s continued commitment to regional Australia.
“The successful project in Kadina is focussed on increasing business opportunities and security.
“The successful project in Kadina will receive $50,000 funding and will be facilitated by the District Council of the Copper Coast to identify industry opportunities and address youth unemployment.
“I’m really pleased to see this project win funding from the Building Better Regions Fund.
“This announcement is a real boost for Kadina.
“Rejuvenating business and invigorating enthusiasm will benefit the entire community.
“Without the Building Better Regions Fund, these community investment projects often struggle to get funding.”
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Building Better Regions Fund Community Investment Stream was investing $6.9 million in community projects throughout regional Australia.
“I aim to help build the kinds of regional communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to. These projects help to do that.”
The Building Better Regions Fund is investing $500 million to foster economic growth in rural, regional, and remote communities.
