The Liberal and Nationals’ Government has committed $150,000 to fund up to 20 local community infrastructure projects across the electorate of Longman.

Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said projects would be funded as part of a $22.65 million investment nationwide under Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme.

“These investments in vital local infrastructure for the people of Longman are the sort of projects that bring our communities together, strengthen social connections, build community participation and create vibrant and viable communities into the future,” Mr Young said.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Stronger Communities Programme was aimed at funding projects that deliver social benefits as part of the Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen communities across Australia.

“Our local communities are the heart of this great country and this investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and ensuring their continued success,” Mr McCormack said.

“The program will fund small capital projects in each of the 151 federal electorates, which can range from upgrading the local community hall or sporting facility, building new bike paths, or providing essential equipment for the local State Emergency Service.”

Each electorate nationwide has received $150,000 to allocate towards successful projects, with a maximum of 20 projects to be funded per electorate. Grant values range from $2,500 to $20,000.
