FRRR Grant to Provide Creative Arts Workshops for Millmerran

The Millmerran community has received a welcome boost in the form of a grant from the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR).

A $10,000 grant will help the Millmerran Academy of Performing Arts run its “What’s the MAPA” series of creative arts workshops. The funds have been made possible by the FRRR’s Strengthening Rural Communities – Small & Vital grants program, which is funded by the federal government.

Leader of The Nationals and Member for Maranoa, David Littleproud, said the Millmerran Academy of Performing Arts was among five community groups from across the Maranoa electorate to benefit from the latest round of FRRR funding.

“The FRRR provides vital grants for regional communities, and it gives me great pride to see Maranoa get its fair share of the latest funds,” Mr. Littleproud said. “I’m confident each of these projects will have a profoundly positive impact on each of the successful communities, and I congratulate everyone involved for being selected for this latest round of grants.”

Also benefiting from the FRRR’s Strengthening Rural Communities – Small & Vital grants program is the Jackson branch of the QCWA, which received $9,900 for its “Back Yard Blitz” project, including landscaping works to improve the safety and amenities of the local CWA hall. The program will also provide a $6,000 grant to the Isisford Primary P&C Association for its “Dancing Lessons in the Dirt and Dust,” aiming to foster community connection by providing after-school dance lessons for kids, culminating in a public performance.

Meanwhile, the FRRR’s federally-funded Strengthening Rural Communities grants program has provided Stanthorpe’s Artworks Granite Belt Inc $8,437 to upgrade the commercial kitchen of its volunteer-run community café and Noorama Sports and Recreation Inc $10,000 to upgrade the kitchen facilities at its community hub.
