VicHealth is inviting Latrobe Valley residents to identify new ways to drive future employment opportunities to increase the health and wellbeing of people in the region.
Through the VicHealth Community Challenge, opening today, Valley residents can register their community driven employment ideas to help boost local employment.
Residents have until 18 May to submit their ideas with the most promising ones, to be chosen by the Valley community, to get access to intensive, expert support and a share in $50,000 to progress an idea that will make a difference.
Sessions will be held in Morwell, Traralgon, Moe, Yallourn North and Churchill next month.
