Funding to boost local councils in Grey

Local councils in the electorate of Grey will be allocated funding through the Federal Government's $1.8 billion boost for road and community projects to support local jobs, businesses and economies.

The package includes a new $500 million Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program and fast tracking the $1.3 billion 2020-21 Financial Assistance Grant payment.

Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said the new program was based on the Roads to Recovery project.

"Not only will this package support jobs, construction businesses and the economy across Barker, it will improve our local roads and provide for new and upgraded amenities to help communities stay connected," Mr Ramsey said.

"A broad range of community infrastructure projects will be eligible including new or upgraded bicycle and walking paths, community facilities, and picnic shelters and barbeque facilities at parks."
