Local community groups are sharing in more than $65,000 allocated from the first round of Inland Rail funding grants for projects and initiatives contributing to the wellbeing of regional communities.
The recipients for Round 1 funding include:
Inland Rail Director of Engagement, Environment and Property Rebecca Pickering said the purpose of the Community Sponsorship and Donations Program is to contribute to the wellbeing of regional communities in which Inland Rail operates.
"Earlier this year nominations were sought from regional centres along the Inland Rail corridor for projects, events, and activities that help achieve community and regional prosperity and sustainability," Ms Pickering said.
"Inland Rail will leave positive legacies of varying magnitudes in regional areas and this program is just one example of the importance we place on ensuring communities are receiving and reaping the benefits.
"In order to maximise benefits for regional areas, applications are restricted to regional centres along the corridor, and the programme is not available to organisations in the capital cities of Melbourne and Brisbane.
"It's very pleasing to see the range of worthwhile projects and initiatives that have been recognised as successful recipients for this initial round.
"Along the corridor, recipients include sporting groups, schools, men's sheds, and Aboriginal organisations with a diverse range of initiatives."
Ms Pickering said there were more opportunities for groups to tap into the Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations Program.
"There will be quarterly rounds of funding, continuing throughout Inland Rail construction with eligible groups able to apply for funding of between $1000 and $4000," she said
