That $10 million initial contribution has now grown to $100 million, supporting almost 10,000 communities, small communities across regional Australia. We, too, as a government support the foundation's work. It's important work. That's why last year the federal government granted the foundation an additional $15 million to provide funding under the Tackling Tough Times Together program. It's a good program, it's helping good people and it's a very, very good initiative.
