Tuesday, 3 December 2013

The Coalition is delivering on the election commitments it made to the people of Hinkler, through the newly established Community Development Grants Programme.

Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt today announced $850,000 for three projects across the electorate.

“Bundaberg Surf Lifesaving will receive $400,000 to go towards its club extension,” Mr Pitt said.

“Hervey Bay Hockey will receive $350,000 for its turf pitch and a further $100,000 will go to the Hervey Bay Surf Lifesaving Club for its tower.”

Mr Pitt said the Community Development Grants Programme was part of the regional community funding package committed to by the Coalition during the 2013 election.

“Up to $342 million will be spent on about 300 community projects across Australia, and I am delighted Hinkler has been able to secure funding for three projects,” he said.

“The Community Development Grants Programme will support infrastructure that has social and economic benefits for regional communities.”
