The Proston Men’s Shed will receive $59,972 from the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) as part of its Tackling Tough Times Together grant program for drought-affected communities.

The latest round of funding was announced last Thursday.

Proston Men’s Shed Inc will receive the assistance to fit out its recently constructed building.

FRRR released $1,454,165 in grants to 41 community-led projects across Australia in the latest round.

The Federal Government has contributed $15 million towards the Tackling Tough Times Together program

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said the latest round came at a critical moment for regional Australia’s economic recovery.

“For many regional communities, the challenges of COVID-19 have compounded the longstanding impact of drought, which we know is only truly broken after 18 to 24 months of sustained good rainfall – something that still seems a long way off in a lot of places,” he said.
