    • $393,531 invested into 15 locally driven projects in the Kimberley region

    Regional Development Minister Terry Redman has today announced the successful grant recipients for the 2017 Kimberley Community Chest Fund.


    The Community Chest Fund provides voluntary organisations, schools and community groups with grants of up to $50,000 to support local projects.


    Mr Redman said hundreds of diverse projects and organisations across regional Western Australia had significantly benefited from the fund in recent years.


    "Included in this round of funding is $50,000 to Enterprise Learning Projects to fund the Tramalla Op Shop project at Kalumburu and $25,000 to the Broome Youth and Families Hub Inc to fund the BYFH Drop in Hall Upgrade," Mr Redman said.


    "Shinju Matsuri will receive $20,000 towards the 2017 Shinju Matsuri festival and $25,000 will go to Netball WA to fund the second North West NAIDOC Netball Carnival to be held at the Derby Netball Association.


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


    "Royalties for Regions is about strengthening and growing our regions and these investments will help regional communities realise their economic potential for the benefit of all West Australians."


    Royalties for Regions will invest $10 million over four years into the Community Chest Fund. WA's nine regional development commissions will oversee the projects.
