Member for Barker, Tony Pasin has secured $15,000 for the Waikerie Youth Hub thanks to the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.
The funding will replace an old leaking air-conditioning system with a new ducted reverse cycle system. It will also contribute to roof and ceiling repairs and the purchase of a new stove top.
“I congratulate the organisation on this successful funding application. It’s a worthy cause run by volunteers at a great organisation and I’m so pleased to be supporting it,” Mr Pasin said.
The Stronger Communities Program provides not for profit organisations access to funds for small capital projects aimed at strengthening communities by improving community facilities.
“This is a great example of dedicated community organisation contributing to make the community stronger. I’m so pleased that Federal Government funding can also support this worthwhile community endeavour,” said Mr Pasin.
