Funding to help grow community events in Tansey

Published:

The Australian Government is continuing to back drought-affected communities, with $23,848 for Tansey Show Society, Federal Member for Wide Bay and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Llew O'Brien announced today.
 
"This funding for Tansey Show Society will be used to purchase two shaded grandstands, making the showgrounds more comfortable for the community to use in hot or inclement weather," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"While we've seen good rainfall in some parts of Wide Bay, many communities like Tansey will still be feeling the effects of the prolonged drought, and has been further compounded by the additional challenges of COVID-19, making our ongoing support all the more vital.
 
"This funding for Tansey Show Society is part of a $1.1 million investment under the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal's Tackling Tough Times Together program to help build social connections in the community, encourage greater participation in events at the Showgrounds, and stimulate the local economy."
 
Mr O'Brien said the Government was pleased to support the Foundation's critical work of supporting and strengthening the capabilities, connections and wellbeing of drought-affected communities.
 
Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud said the latest funding was once again aimed at reducing social isolation or responding to individual and community challenges.
 
"Projects include the development of the Black Rock Wool Press Rotunda in Orroroo, the Aboriginal Women's Research Assistant and Evaluation Training Project at Carnarvon and the restoration and revitalisation of Gooloogong's meeting place," Minister Littleproud said.
 
"I urge all community groups in drought-affected areas to apply for funding under the Tackling Tough Times Together program to bring their much-needed initiatives to life."
 
More information on the Tackling Tough Times Together program and the latest round of recipients can be found on the Foundation's website at www.frrr.org.au/grants/TTTT or by visiting the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications website at www.regional.gov.au/regional/programs.
