Eurobodalla, Shoalhaven and Kiama Councils receive early Federal grants

Ann Sudmalis has welcomed the announcement that Eurobodalla, Shoalhaven and Kiama Councils will receive early payment from the Financial Assistance Grants program.

“The Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh announced the Government has made an early payment of 50 per cent of the 2018-19 Financial Assistance Grant funding. I welcome this announcement on behalf of our local councils.”

This early cash injection of more than $1.2 billion will allow councils to start work straight away on new projects and benefit from additional interest on cash in the bank.

“Financial Assistance Grants allow our local councils to invest in infrastructure projects, road upgrades and repairs, transport, recreation, environmental and employment projects in our region. I trust our local councils will invest this funding in worthwhile projects throughout Gilmore” said Mrs Sudmalis.

Eurobodalla Shire Council will receive $3,513,346 for roads and infrastructure projects, Shoalhaven City Council will receive $6,217,467 and Kiama Municipal Council will receive $823,542.

“This is an investment of over $10,554,355 for our local councils and for our community. Our government is delivering for regional Australia and we are providing projects and programs such as the Roads to Recovery, Bridges to Renewal, Building Better Regions Fund and Regional Growth Fund.”
