KOWREE Nursing Home at Edenhope will receive redevelopment money from the State Government.
Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty said the home at Edenhope and District Memorial Hospital would receive $500,000 for capital works.
“This funding will be a great boost to the redevelopment of Kowree Nursing Home,” he said.
“The hospital will be able to continue to provide health services to the aged residents of the district.”
The money will go towards minor redevelopments and refurbishments, new carpeting and new air-conditioning.
Mr Delahunty congratulated the hospital staff on the work they did providing health care to the community.
He said the State Government was committed to supporting senior Victorians.
“As our population is rapidly ageing, we are committed to maintaining access to high-quality and safe public sector residential aged care services,” he said.
Barengi Gadjin Land Council has also received money – $50,000 for the protection and management of Aboriginal culture and heritage.
Mr Delahunty said the grant recognised the importance of protecting and maintaining the unique cultural heritage of Aboriginal Victoria.
“Money provided to registered Aboriginal parties supports their activities in protecting and managing Aboriginal culture and heritage and it is important that we work together to ensure their future viability and sustainability,” he said.
Minister for Local Government Jeanette Powell said the State Government placed importance on ensuring Aboriginal people had a strong voice in managing their cultural heritage.
