Among the recipients of the grant is a Myrtleford initiative from the Trustee For Into Our Hands Community Foundation which sees a corporate distribution of money throughout the community.

Chairperson of RDA Hume, Susan Benedyka, says “Wangaratta has a really great project at looking at Farmers and Eaters, growing our regional food system.”

Yackandandah Pistol Club has received $49,500 for their new clubhouse and the Wangaratta Football and Netball Club has got a new riverside canteen stand and an upgrade for an all-weather shelter.

The development of the "cycling" market has also been funded which includes recreational, mountain bike and road racing. This includes Mountain Bike Australia Limited in Bright, the North East Victoria Tourism Board in Beechworth and Alpine Shire Council, all of which have looked for money to further develop that market.
