RUSHWORTH Community House will receive funding as part of the Victorian budget.
Neighbourhood houses throughout Victoria will share in $21.8 million to help support staff and volunteers.
“We said we’d deliver for neighbourhood houses and this budget provides the biggest increase to coordination hours ever,” Labor Upper House Member for northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said.
“In one budget we’re investing almost eight times what the former Liberal National government spent during their entire term. We back neighbourhood houses — they’re the heart of any community, including here in northern Victoria.
“This is a boost that will have a real impact on all those connected to neighbourhood houses.”
