Community Chest funding for Mid-West region

Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney has welcomed today’s announcement that John Willcock College and Geraldton Senior College have together received $18,000 to facilitate neurology and education professional learning workshops, to be delivered by an international expert in neurology of learning, Dr Judy Willis through Community Chest funding .

 The fund supports region-specific priorities that are driven by local communities to assist the development of infrastructure, services and community projects that help build vibrant regions with strong economies.

 WA's nine regional development commissions oversee the projects, each being allocated an equal share from which to provide the Community Chest Fund grants.

 The State Government, through the Royalties for Regions program, has invested $10 million into the fund over four years.
