Building Better Regions Success

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Commissioner for Kangaroo Island Wendy Campana together with Mayor Peter Clements have welcomed the announcement of the success of their joint funding application to the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions fund.

The grant for $155,300 has been awarded to the Kangaroo Island Council, and they will work with the Commissioner’s office to deliver the Growth Project alongside the Commissioner’s Transformation Project which is already working with business sectors across the Island.

The Building Better Regions grant will be used to:

*             increase local business knowledge, capability and ‘business readiness’ for growth;

*             develop an engagement and collaboration strategy to drive effective regional planning; and,

*             increase the business confidence level of Kangaroo Island business leaders and emerging leaders.

These key objectives will be achieved via a series of workshops, business events and training programs due to commence shortly.
