Federal grant delivers $600,000 for disability services

Ann Sudmalis MP this afternoon announced the delivery of $9.5 million in Community Development Grants to various organisations throughout the region.

The Federal Member Gilmore was thrilled to be able to reallocate the funding originally intended for the Yerriyong Motorsports Complex.

“This is a wonderful result for the community, I promised the money would be re-invested into equally important projects and it has,” she said.

“The delivery was the result of robust discussions with the Minister for Regional Development, Darren Chester MP and prior to that with Senator Fiona Nash who had responsibility initially.

“My number one priority is the well being of our many communities across Gilmore, and these latest investments will make a difference.”

One of seven organisations to receive funding was Yumaro Incorporated, granted $600,000 for the Yumaro Disability Services stage two of the residential respite centre.

“I congratulate Mark Brantigham, Chief Executive Officer at Yumaro Incorporated and look forward to the project’s development,” said Mrs Sudmalis.

The Coalition Government is committed to supporting Gilmore’s communities, and working with its people to make sure there is a brighter, stronger future.
