Sunassist receives Federal funding boost

Sunassist Mildura has made a successful application for a grant under Round 3 of the Federal Government's Stronger Communities Program.

The scheme has seen $20,000 provided to the group to go towards a new wheelchair accessible vehicle transporting elderly and disabled residents across the region.

A group of around 300 volunteers are set to use the funds to go towards a Volkswagen Caddy delivering transport for those in our area that are confined to wheelchairs.

In the 2017 Budget, the Australian Government committed $22.5M for the third round of the program, funding selected projects that will ultimately enhance the community.

Member for Mallee, Andrew Broad, says that the funds will not only contribute towards the Volkswagen Caddy, but, it will also help locals who rely on the system to get out and about in our region.
