Communities in Pearce will benefit from a share of $4.7 million in funding under Round 3 of the Federal Liberal Government’s highly successful Building Better Regions Fund.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, today announced the following local projects have been successful in securing funding under Round 3 of the fund:
Mr Porter extended his congratulations to the successful applicants. Each of the projects will benefit the wider Pearce community by growing the local economy and building strong futures for Australia’s regions.
“It’s projects such as these that make our regional communities even better places to live, work and raise a family, and I’m excited to see the positive difference this funding will make to our community,” Mr Porter said.
Mr Porter said that this funding is further evidence of the Liberal Government’s steadfast commitment to ensuring Australia’s regions remain strong, resilient and prosperous.
“We are supporting our regions through investing in important local infrastructure, as well as funding great community-building and planning initiatives under the Building Better Regions Fund and other Government initiatives such as the Regional Growth Fund and our decentralisation agenda.
“In this round we are also investing more than $70 million in regional tourism infrastructure, to support those many regional communities that rely on tourism to bolster their economy.
“We have seen fantastic outcomes from the first two rounds, and today’s announcement continues our commitment to unlocking the economic potential of regional Australia and ensuring our regions continue to thrive both now and into the future.”
