    • Peel Community Chest Fund grant recipients announced
    • Community projects funded by $10 million investment over four years
    • Made possible by the State Government's Royalties for Regions program 

    Regional Development Minister Terry Redman today announced the latest grant recipients of the Peel region's Community Chest Fund, made possible by the Liberal National Government's Royalties for Regions program.


    Mr Redman said a total of $500,000 in grants had been awarded to 20 community groups, public and not-for-profit organisations for projects to improve and develop infrastructure and services in the regions.


    "The Community Chest Fund provides voluntary organisations, educational institutions and community organisations with grants of up to $50,000 to support local projects," he said.


    "Projects supported through the Peel Community Chest Fund in this round include shade protection and fencing at Waroona Bowling and Social Club, a community garden in Byford, the purchase of training yachts and a floating pontoon for disability sailing at Port Bouvard and the extension of a walking trail in Boddington.


    "These projects will help attract investment, increase job opportunities and improve the quality of life for communities in the Peel region.


    "The fund supports region-specific priorities that are driven by local communities to assist the development of infrastructure, services and community projects that help build vibrant regions with strong economies.


    "Hundreds of diverse projects and organisations across regional WA have significantly benefited from the fund in recent years."


    Western Australia's nine regional development commissions oversee the projects, each being allocated an equal share from which to provide the Community Chest Fund grants.


    The Liberal National Government, through the Royalties for Regions program, has invested $10 million into the Community Chest Fund over the next four years.
