Pilbara News - - News -

Mem­ber for Durack Melissa Price has re­minded ap­pli­cants there is only two weeks left to sub­mit ap­pli­ca­tions for fund­ing un­der Round Three of the Na­tional Stronger Re­gions Fund.

“I en­cour­age ap­pli­cants with projects demon­strat­ing strong long-term eco­nomic ben­e­fits and the po­ten­tial to tackle lo­cal dis­ad­van­tage to sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tion as soon as pos­si­ble to avoid miss­ing out,” she said.

“Grants must be be­tween $20,000 and $10 mil­lion and grant fund­ing must be matched in cash on at least a dol­lar-for-dol­lar ba­sis, ex­cept for those ap­pli­cants in re­mote and very re­mote lo­ca­tions.

“Re­mote and very re­mote ap­pli­cants need to con­trib­ute at least one dol­lar for ev­ery three dol­lars of fund­ing sought.”

Ms Price said the NSRF would pro­vide $1 bil­lion over five years for cap­i­tal projects in­volv­ing the con­struc­tion of new in­fra­struc­ture or the upgrade of ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties.
