MRC gets almost $50 million fund
COUNCILS in Murray will receive a total of $49.2 million this financial year to support local communities. The Coalition has allocated the first quarterly payment of $6.2 million to local councils in Murray under the 2018-19 Financial Assistance Grant Program.
“This grant can help councils deliver infrastructure projects and fund health, recreation, environmental and employment projects,” Mr Drum said. “Councils are free to spend this untied funding based on their own local priorities including the infrastructure and services our communities need.
