The Eurobodalla and Bega Valley shires have secured an exciting $61.59 million for 25 deserving projects.
On Wednesday, June 30, Member for Bega Andrew Constance announced the successful projects who applied for Stage Two of the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, co-funded by the Australian and NSW Goverments.
Mr Constance said the projects would deliver important infrastructure improvements, environmental results, industry and business development along with social and community outcomes.
"This fund was all about driving our local economic and social recovery, and it certainly delivers that for our region," Mr Constance said.
"Whilst the projects announced today are just one part of the complete recovery journey of the Bega Valley and Eurobodalla, it will help us to continue repairing the fabric of our communities.
"These projects will see our region transformed over the coming months and years, and I am excited about where we are headed in terms of our recovery locally.".
For projects that missed out on funding, there will be another chance to apply for the Australian Government's $280 million Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants, which is expected to open in early July 2021.
