The Mendooran community has received a most welcome boost with the announcement of a $5,552 grant to paint the Mendooran Preschool.
Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has congratulated Mendooran Preschool Committee on their successful application, which has been funded under Round Four of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
“This grant is an excellent investment in an important community asset in Mendooran,” Mr Coulton said.
“The committee will use their funding to have the preschool painted, adding significantly to its visual appeal.
“I know this will go a long way to help ensure Mendooran Preschool continues to be a vibrant place for children and staff to enjoy, and I look forward to seeing the final product.”
In July last year, the Australian Government announced the launch of Round Four of the SCP. The Government’s funding commitment for Round Four is $22.5 million, with up to $150,000 for each electorate. A maximum of 20 projects will be funded in each electorate, with successful projects receiving a grant between $2,500 and $20,000.
