AP­PLI­CA­TIONS are open for fund­ing un­der round 2 of the Build­ing Bet­ter Re­gions Fund. Can­ning MHR Andrew Hastie said the Peel re­gion had al­ready ben­e­fited from round one, with $3 mil­lion de­liv­ered to­wards the Shire of Mur­ray’s Dwellingup Trails Hub and Quarm­bie Park’s Wa­roona Hous­ing Op­tions Vil­lage. “Job cre­ation is a pri­or­ity and this pro­gram will bring lo­cal jobs for lo­cal res­i­dents,’’ he said. “It will de­liver jobs in con­struc­tion, tourism and health care and boost lo­cal busi­ness.” Mr Hastie said he was pleased more ru­ral towns in the Peel re­gion were el­i­gi­ble in round 2. “This de­ci­sion recog­nises the ru­ral char­ac­ter of the Peel re­gion,’’ he said.
