Government extension of the Drought Communities Program

It was great to see the Federal Government make further announcements around drought support earlier this month.

One of the elements most welcomed by local communities was an extension of the Drought Communities Program. This program is now extended to 128 councils, across the nation, doing it tough. This is great news for the local councils across the Central West.

This program sees immediate injections into local infrastructure and drought relief projects. This is good news for local jobs and economic growth.
