The Beverley Cornerstone project will be given $1.3m in grant money, through the Australian Government Building Better Regions Fund.

The purpose of the project is to construct a multipurpose facility to create a better place to live, work, learn and interact.

The project business case said the facility aims to cater to community needs and be a place for community activities, education, business incubation and tourism.

The centre will be built at Vincent Street, Beverley, opposite the Beverley Administration Centre.

Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, announced the news on Tuesday.

“The local community of Beverley will receive great benefits from this project – it will create employment, boost economic growth and help foster a strong, sustainable community in our Wheatbelt region.

"Together with the Shire of Beverley, we've fought long and hard for this project and it's so great to see it delivered.”

Beverley has received other funding for the project from the Shire of Beverley ($1,465,000), Beverley Community Resource Centre ($25,000), Lotterywest ($745,000), the Department of Regional Development WA ($250,000) and the Department of Regional Development ($195,000).
