NORTHERN Mallee Leaders will continue to push for a Victorian Government funding extension that covers the next four years.

Victorian Regional Community Leadership Programs (VRCLP), the peak body for 10 programs across the state, was looking to last month’s State Budget for funds beyond this year.
