Victory for fire-impacted community

Mr Chester said, "This is a common sense outcome and a victory for these fire-impacted community groups. I have been working with the community groups and the Deputy Prime Minister's office to have the projects properly and fairly assessed."

"The Sarsfield and Ensay recreation reserve projects were recommended as being meritorious for consideration as a Community Development Grant (CDG). I want to thank the Deputy Prime Minister's office for working in a professional and constructive manner to deliver a fair outcome for East Gippslanders. Make no mistake, these grants would not have been secured without the Deputy Prime Minister's support." Mr Chester said.
