WA regional aged accommodation funding

The Western austrlaian Government is helping to meet the aged accommodation needs of regional Western Australia, awarding $13.1 million to six aged care regional accommodational projects.

 

The State Government has prioritised funding to ensure investment in aged accommodation is targeted to allow ageing local residents to remain in their regional communities.

 

A total of $13.1 million has been allocated to build and expand accommodation in Pinjarra, Donnybrook, Dunsborough, Dongara, Brunswick Junction and across the Great Southern, including Broomehill, Cranbrook, Katanning, Kojonup and Bremer Bay.

 

An additional $160,000 has been allocated to further developing business cases for four proposals that cover Leonora, Laverton, Corrigin, Cuballing, Kondinin, Narrogin, Wickepin, Dowerin, Goomalling and Victoria Plains, where there is clear demand for aged accommodation.

 

Another $7.64 million has been set aside for future consideration of these proposals.
