Three of the projects (Illabo Showground Pavillion Upgrade; Lions Club Papershed Revitalisation; and the Junee Golf Club Junior Golf Program) had previously been submitted to the My Community Project funding opportunity in 2019. By having a “shovel-ready” project and a solid application already prepared, these projects were easy to update for submission to the Stronger Country Communities Fund.
