$1m for Peel region projects

ABOUT $1 million will be spent on projects in the Peel region as part of the Regional Grants Scheme.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the funding came from Royalties for Regions.

He said Royalties for Regions was continuing to invest in the State’s regional areas to build a stronger economy and a better quality of life for all West Australians.

“The projects will promote and encourage sustainable development in the regions by providing economic, social and environmental benefits that will increase employment opportunities and drive regional growth for the benefit of the whole State,” he said.
