This money will part of stage two of the Caravan park upgrade.  The announcement is a part of a $10 million drought support fund announced last week while the premier, Daniel Andrews,  Minister for Agriculture Jaala Pulford MP  and Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lisa Neville MP while visiting the Wimmera.

Ms Pulford said, “this is new money for the Dimboola Community out of the $10 million dollars that we have just announced to help drought affected areas.”

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews went on to say, “the $10 million dollars has been invested in long term projects so communities who are working through the drought have something to show at the end of the drought that will bring benefits back to the community for many years to come.”

“I understand that communities are suffering from the effects of drought. With consultation with communities we have come up with a number of projects that will bring long term benefits to those communities well after the drought ends,” he said.

“Victoria will see drought cycles more often into the future and the investments we make now will help for a long time into the future,” Mr Andrews said.
