Thirteen volunteer groups in Grey have been successful under the Federal Government Volunteers Grants program.
Groups from across Grey are among thousands of volunteers across Australia benefiting from funding to support community organisations.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said 13 organisations in Grey were successful under the reserve phase of the latest round.
“The previous Government’s investment in local communities has delivered vital support to so many community groups right across who help keep country communities vibrant and help many of our most vulnerable citizens,” he said.
“These grants will assist a range of local groups including sporting clubs, progress associations, a landcare group and a CFS.
“The grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 enable organisations to better support their volunteers by purchasing much-needed equipment, training and transport with the purchases to include power tools, first aid equipment, outdoor furniture, computer equipment, whitegoods and training costs.
“I acknowledge the important work of our volunteers and their organisations in building stronger communities.
“The energy, expertise and time volunteers give to their communities supports those most in need and represents what Australian communities are all about – giving a helping hand.
“I’m glad to see that our local organisations will have this support to continue their valuable work.”
