Nineteen projects worth $2 million have received funding under the latest round of the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility Community Benefit Program (CBP).

The grants will support jobs, economic activity, and social cohesion in South Australia’s Kimba community, the site of the National Radioactive Waste Management facility.   

Funded projects include:

  • upgrades to the Kimba District Hospital facilities
  • a new Kimba Youth and Community Hub
  • a ‘shop local’ marketing initiative to support local businesses
  • refurbishment of the Kimba Op Shop.

The latest funding round builds on $4 million of grants and 50 projects already funded in Kimba under the program.
