Community Infrastructure and Cultural Precincts program

12 Jul 2017 Alexandra Eildon Marysville Standard, Alexandra VIC (General News) LABOR Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today welcomed the opening of the 2017 Community Infrastructure and Cultural Precincts (CICP) program, which will help build, restore and enhance cultural spaces across Victoria. The program promotes a greater use of community facilities and precincts by culturally-diverse communities, and encourages more people to participate in local activities. The grants will improve access to services and ensure community precincts support a range of cultural and tourism activities. The Labor Government will continue to promote an inclusive society where every Victorian is able to share their culture and traditions. Every day, were making Victoria a state where everyone belongs, and these grants will help more people share their culture, contribute to the community and feel accepted, Ms Symes said. The grants will promote diversity by building and improving cultural precincts, ensuring all Victorians can enjoy our rich multicultural heritage. I encourage organisations in Northern Victoria to apply for funding and look at how they can make a difference in their community. Community groups, organisations and associations are encouraged to apply for funding to support projects in the 2017/18 financial year. For more information, visit Licensed by Copyright Agency.
