Kingscliff District Football Club will receive $5,000 in federal funding for change rooms under the Stronger Communities Programme said local MP Justine Elliot.

‘I congratulate Kingscliff District Football Club on this important project. They will match the federal funding of $5,000 bringing the total value of the project to $10,000 for these additional change rooms.

‘The project will allow for the club to install change rooms at the Walter Peate Oval where none currently exist. The additional two change rooms will provide club members and visiting teams with basic amenities before and after games. The successful completion of this project will give the Club the capacity to meet the needs of players during the season.

‘Our local Stronger Communities Programme delivers funding across the Richmond electorate for small capital grants supporting projects that will contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our region.

‘I’ll always fight to get our fair share from Canberra. This funding is part of the more than $2 billion that I’ve delivered for local roads, schools, health and community resources,” Justine said.
