    Community Chest funding for Peel region

    27/01/2017 12:25 PM
    • $500,000 invested into 20 locally driven projects in the Peel region

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


    The Community Chest Fund provides voluntary organisations, not-for-profit associations 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 $40,000 to the Mandurah Retirement Village to upgrade Tickner Reserve providing accessible facilities adjacent to the Coolibah Total Caring aged and young people with disability residence and $50,000 to the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale towards the construction of the Byford Skate Park," he said.


    "Quambie Park, Waroona will receive $25,000 towards a generator to ensure continuous power to the facility during bushfire emergencies and power failures, and $40,000 will go to the Pinjarra Harness Racing Club to improve disabled access and extend the viewing area at Pinjarra Paceway.


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