BBRF provides new community hub for Onslow
March 6, 2019
Communities across the Durack electorate will benefit from a share of more than $4 million in funding under Round 3 of the Federal Government’s highly successful Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).
Federal Member for Durack and Minister for the Environment Melissa Price said she is delighted that Durack has fared so well in this round and that the Government’s investment in local projects under Round 3 will help grow the economy and build a strong future for Australia’s regions.
“Funding of $50,000 has been allocated to an Onslow project under the BBRF Infrastructure stream,” she said.
“The project will benefit the Onslow community which is a great outcome for Durack.
The funding is allocated to the Onslow Swan Districts Football Club for the Onslow v Swans – Youth and Community Powerhouse Centre Office Building to construct a community hub to provide a location for local and regional not-for-profit organisations to be based.
The building will create a positive working space to engage other not-for-profit and government organisations who share the same values and vision as the club has developed and grown over the past 12 years.
“It is projects such as these that make our regional communities even better places to live, work and raise a family - and also visit, and I’m excited to see the positive difference this funding will make to the community,” said Minister Price.
“In this round we are also investing more than $70 million in regional tourism infrastructure, to support those many regional communities that rely on tourism to bolster their economy.”
