$5,500 TO HELP MASONS ESTABLISH 20 NEW COMMUNITY CARE PACKAGES The Northern Inland Masonic Retirement Centre will receive a $5,500 grant from the Federal Government to establish 20 new community care packages in the New England region, the National Party Federal Member for New England, Stuart St Clair, announced today.

“Veteran and Community Grants like this help to develop projects that provide practical support to veterans and ex-service communities across Australia,” Mr St.Clair said.

“Projects funded are wide ranging and include providing capital funding for residential care facilities like Northern Inland Masonic Retirement Centre, promoting health issues, encouraging healthier lifestyles and improving access to community care services.”

Funding is available to ex-service organisations and other groups best placed to meet identified veteran and community needs such as residential and community care issues.

Mr St.Clair said the Northern Inland Masonic Retirement Centre would use its grant to establish 20 new community care packages in the New England region in particular the Moree Plains, Bingara, Narrabri and Gunnedah local government areas, in order to provide aged people with

community care services.

“This grant again demonstrates this government’s commitment to meeting needs of older people in the North West area,” he said.

Veteran and Community Grants will assist projects across Australia with more than $8.6 million funding during 2000-2001.
