Funding delivered for projects across our community

Published on Wed 30 March 2022 12:10pm

From the installation of solar panels to essential equipment and facility upgrades, a diverse range of projects at 22 community and sporting groups across the federal electorate of Fremantle are currently underway or complete thanks to a total of $217,500 in recent Commonwealth grant funding.

The grants have enabled small capital works, equipment purchases, and energy efficiency measures to the value of $768,000.

Local groups and sporting & community clubs form the connective tissue of our community, and I’m glad to have been able to support their dedication to improving services and providing more opportunities for participation and social inclusion across Fremantle, East Fremantle, and Cockburn.
