The Newman Government has approved a funding grant to assist the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) Group in Woodford.

 Community Safety Minister Jack Dempsey said the funding was awarded under the 2013-2014 SES Non-Recurrent Subsidy Program.

 “This program provides assistance to local governments to help maintain and support the vital services the SES delivers,” Mr Dempsey said.

 Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP said thirteen projects across the state were successful in securing funding under the 2013-2014 Program.

“Local councils were invited to submit applications for funding for SES accommodation, SES motor vehicle and motor vehicle accessories and SES office equipment,” Mr Powell said.

“I am pleased to announce an application from the Moreton Bay Regional Council for a $50,000 grant has been approved to construct a building for the Woodford SES Group.”

The SES Subsidy Program is a Queensland Government program administered by the Grants Management Unit, Emergency Management Queensland and the Department of Community Safety.
