Funding for Nimbin community hub

LOCAL MP Justine Elliot today announced that the Casuarina building located at the Nimbin Community Centre, will receive $14,704 in federal funding under the Stronger Communities Programme.

This funding will allow for repairs to the walk way between the Casuarina building and the main building, and also a new toilet and electrical upgrades will be undertaken.

“I congratulate the Nimbin Community Centre on this important project.,” Ms Elliot said.

“The Nimbin Community Centre will match this funding of $14,704 bringing the total amount of the project to $29,408 for the Nimbin Community Centre project.

“The upgrades will enhance the Nimbin Community Centre and the improvements to the walk way will encourage more people to walk through the grounds to the Nimbin Aboriginal Arts and Cultural centre.

“Our local Stronger Communities Programme will deliver total funding of $150,000 across the Richmond electorate for small capital grants supporting projects that will contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our region.

“I’ll always fight to get our fair share from Canberra. This funding is part of the more than $2 billion that I’ve delivered for local roads, schools, health and community resources.”
