The Commonwealth Government has today announced infrastructure projects to be funded in Indi under the $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund.
The Government will provide $212 million in funding to 51 priority infrastructure projects nationwide in Round One of the programme, including over $12 million in Indi.
The following projects will receive funding up to a maximum of 50 per cent of the total project cost under the Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund:
– Construction of an alpine events centre in Bright
– Upgrade of recreational reserve facilities at Wahgunyah
– Upgrade of Wodonga City heart infrastructure
Senator for Victoria, Senator Fifield said the development of an alpine events centre in Bright as well as an upgrade of both the recreation reserve facilities in Wahgunyah and the Wodonga City heart infrastructure would cater for the growing needs of the region.
The National Stronger Regions Fund will deliver $1 billion over five years to enhance economic growth and sustain regions into the future.
The Government has been exceptionally pleased with the amount of interest in the Fund, with 405 applications received in Round One, seeking funding of over $1.2 billion.
After a competitive merit-based selection process, Government funding has been approved for 51 local projects around the nation.
“We are committed to strengthening regions across Australia by investing in projects to build or upgrade vital infrastructure,” Senator Fifield said.
