Australian Government’s Drought Communities Programme Extension

On 7 November 2019, the Australian Government announced a further range of drought measures, including that it would provide $128 million under the Drought Communities Programme Extension to 128 councils, 122 of which had previously received funding and an additional six councils experiencing hardship due to drought.

As a drought declared council area Orroroo Carrieton will receive an additional $1 million to complete local infrastructure and other drought-relief projects in 2020.

Funding through the DCP targets projects that:

1.         provide work for people whose employment has been impacted by drought

2.         stimulate local community spending

3.         use local resources, businesses and suppliers

4.         provide a long-lasting benefit to communities and the agricultural industries they depend on

Following the hugely successful projects delivered in early 2019, Council are keen to hear from you in development of the next round of projects.

Council has developed an easy to use project plan template which you or your community group can detail you project or idea and submit to Council for consideration. To request a copy of the template please email council@orroroo.sa.gov.au

If you would to know more about submitting a project for consideration there will be an informal information session held with Council staff, 5pm Tuesday 10 December 2019 in the Orroroo Council Chambers.

Projects and ideas will be considered at the December 2019 and January 2020 Council Meetings
