Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

AP­PLI­CANTS are en­cour­aged to get their ini­tial sub­mis­sions in for the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Re­gional Growth Fund which closes on April 27.

For­rest MHR Nola Marino said the $272 mil­lion Re­gional Growth Fund would sup­port ma­jor projects in re­gional, ru­ral and re­mote ar­eas that de­liv­ered long-term eco­nomic ben­e­fits.

Mrs Marino said the fund was an op­por­tu­nity to ‘think big’ on new or ex­panded re­gional projects, with 50 per cent of project fund­ing on of­fer.

Mrs Marino said the fund was aimed at pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional in­vest­ment for sus­tain­able eco­nomic growth, in­clud­ing from the pri­vate sec­tor, other lev­els of gov­ern­ment, and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Ini­tial ap­pli­ca­tions must be sub­mit­ted by 3pm on April 27.
