$32,000 upgrades for pools
to be budgeted towards a capital project that could occur in 2016-17 or 201718. The change means local governments can use the funding from multiple years on an identified future capital upgrade, capital maintenance item or major equipment project, which will significantly revitalise a regional aquatic facility.
“The role country swimming pools play in strengthening local communities cannot be underestimated. Not only are they great places for people to get active but they are important hubs for people to gather and feel a sense of community and belonging.”
The funds are supplied through a four-year $13.2 million Royalties for Regions program.
Applications close on October 30.
