$85,000 for Local Answers project in Pearce MEDIA RELEASE Friday, 31 March 2006

Suncity Access Centre Incorporated in Two Rocks will receive $85,000 to help 160 people develop arts and event management programs in the Region, Member for Pearce Hon Judi Moylan MP announced today.

“Projects such as this will create opportunities for families in our community and build on their skills and abilities,” she said.

This project was one of 140 communities across Australia to share in $20 million through Local Answers.

The Local Answers initiative is part of the $490 million Stronger Families and Communities Strategy, giving communities the power to develop their own solutions through small-scale developments.

Funding for Local Answers is provided by the Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Hon Mal Brough MP.

“This funding is another example of the Howard Government’s continued commitment to helping families and communities across Australia,” Ms Moylan said.

“I would like to congratulate Suncity Access Centre for their success with this excellent initiative.”
