Second round of the Building Better Regions Fund open to Gilmore

Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis MP has urged organisations to apply for Round Two of the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF), with applications now open for funding to support more jobs and economic growth though out Kiama, the Shoalhaven and Eurobodalla.

Mrs Sudmalis said the region had done well from Round One, with over $542,000 delivered toward four projects across the two streams. “Round One has provided organisations such as Friends of the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens with the ability to redevelop the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre, and the Kiama Show Society Incorporated to deliver the Kiama Artisan Expo for their community,” she said. “It is projects like this that will support local businesses; create more jobs, while making sure the needs of the community are met.” “The fact that Building Better Regions Fund has two streams - Infrastructure Projects and Community Investments – means communities have even more flexibility in developing proposals. “With submissions closing on 19 December 2017 for both streams, I encourage all eligible organisations to get their application in,” said Mrs Sudmalis. Acting Minister for Regional Development Darren Chester said Building Better Regions Fund was designed to back projects that create further investment in the community. “Applicants should demonstrate how their project will drive economic development, make their region a more attractive place to live and foster partnerships across their community,” Mr Chester said. “In a previous round named National Stronger Regions, Mind the Gap was a successful project. This project is built on the now Shoalhaven Campus to help train mental health professionals, provide a partnership with Lifeline and link research to the community and mental health initiatives.” “When combined, both streams will encourage job creation, economic growth, and encourage social cohesion across Australia”.
