DANDENONG NETBALL ASSOCIATION LIVING THE DREAM

 

Federal Member for Isaacs Mark Dreyfus has welcomed news that the Dandenong and District Netball Association will receive $5,530 to equip a ‘dream room’ at the Ella Athorn Pavilion in Dandenong with audio visual equipment including a television, a projector, chairs, tables and a laptop.


Mr Dreyfus recommended the project for funding under the second round of the Stronger Communities Grants Programme.

 

“This ‘Dream Room’ will be of enormous benefit to the Dandenong and District Netball Association, as well as the wider community,” Mr Dreyfus said.

 

“Groups including the Southern Migrant and Refugee Centre, Wallara Australia, Victorian First Aid and many netball groups use the ‘Dream Room’ in the Ella Athorn Pavilion. This grant will allow the ‘Dream Room’ to live up to its name and provide a great service to our local community.”

 

“I am very pleased to have been able to assist the Dandenong Netball Association to obtain this grant,” Mr Dreyfus said.

 

This Programme provides grants between $5,000 and $20,000 and is available for projects that improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of local communities.

 

Mark Dreyfus worked with a Community Advisory Committee to identify which ideas represented the best investment in our community, and then made a final recommendation on which projects should receive funding.

 

More information on the funding programme, including guidelines, is available at http://investment.infrastructure.gov.au/funding/scp/.
