The Partnership engages with the Mallee community throughout the year and takes our region’s priorities to the Victorian Government.
Over time, the Partnership has been able to refine the region’s priorities as it has consulted further.
In some cases, Government has responded to the priorities with funding for specific initiatives at Budget time or through the year.
But not all of our priorities require funding initiatives to get off the ground.
The Partnership recently completed an Outcomes Roadmap - a summary of the key outcomes the Partnership is striving to achieve, the actions and key projects the Partnership is focusing on, and what success will look like for the region. This is a living document and will be updated going forward.
One way in which our Partnership priorities can be realised is through the Budget process.

- Funding for investment planning for Mildura Sports and Community Precinct
