After two long years since the bushfires, I am pleased to announce that we have won funding for critical projects to support people across the South Coast impacted by the 2019-20 bushfires.
Our communities have been through so much. These projects will help individual communities recover in their own way, making life that tiny bit easier — and importantly allowing recovery and healing.
I have been proud to have worked with many of you to develop grant proposals and ensure that local projects in the Shoalhaven and Eurobodalla have been supported. Not only will this critical funding help with recovery, but many projects will have long lasting benefits for generations to come.
I will always fight for our community to ensure people and organisations get the help they need.
Please see the successful Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants for the Eurobodalla and Shoalhaven below, along with the link to my speech in parliament today. See my speech in parliament
