Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has announced that Brewarrina Shire Council will receive another $1million for local projects under the Coalition Government’s Drought Communities Programme (DCP) – Extension.
Mr Coulton said he was thrilled an extra $1 million would be injected across the shire to fund a range of exciting initiatives.
The news follows Mr Coulton’s announcement last week that Bourke Shire Council would also receive $1 million in DCP grants.
“The Coalition Government committed to delivering an additional $1 million to every council in my electorate, including Brewarrina, under the DCP – Extension, so that we can get cracking on important local projects to stimulate community spending and support jobs,” Mr Coulton said.
“These grants are providing a vital cash injection at a time when drought has had a major impact on community morale and the local economy right across my electorate.
