The Federal Government’s highly anticipated Regional Growth Fund is open for applications.
Member for Murray Damian Drum is calling for big ideas from the community that could help shape the future of the region.
Mr Drum said the $272million Regional Growth Fund would support major projects in regional, rural and remote areas that delivered long-term economic benefits.
‘‘This is an exciting program that could deliver major projects over $20million in our community that take advantage of our region’s natural economic strengths. Projects will need to create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities,’’ Mr Drum said.
‘‘The Regional Growth Fund will support additional investment for sustainable economic growth, including from the private sector, other levels of government and not-for-profit organisations.
‘‘Initial applications close on April 27, 2018, and I encourage everyone eligible in our community to look at the program guidelines and get started on an application.’’
