Public input sought for Stronger Regions Fund

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Hinkler residents with ideas for projects that will create jobs and stimulate the local economy are invited to attend community forums in Bundaberg and Hervey Bay next month.

Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said applications under Round One of the Australian Government’s landmark $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF) were now open.

“While it is up to Councils, community and not-for-profit groups to apply, I wanted to open the discussion up to all Hinkler residents,” Mr Pitt said.

“I encourage Hinkler residents to come along and have their say.”

The forums will be held at 5pm on Wednesday November 5 at the Bundaberg CWA Hall on Quay Street and at 5pm on Thursday November 6 at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre on Charles Street.
