Meningie Progress Association will be able to build a storage shed and meeting room after winning an $18,000 grant from the federal government.

The cash will come from the Stronger Communities Program, which Member for Barker Tony Pasin said was about funding projects which would have a social benefit.

“Our local communities are the heart of this great country and the investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Program is about invigorating these communities and ensuring they have the facilities to remain vibrant, great places to live into the future," he said.

“The Meningie Progress Association is a wonderful organisation that means a great deal to its members and does wonderful things for the community.

“This is exactly the sort of project that brings community together, strengthens social connections and builds community participation."
