Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan on Friday announced two grants totalling $10,500 to start new projects on Friday, and praised the good work the organisation does for the local community.

"Men's Sheds are a vital community assets and play an important role in the lives of many," Mr Hogan said.

"This funding will allow them to install three- phase power to existing shed and bring up to standard.

"They will also install two 15 amp outlets, safety switches, and circuit breaker protection to the main switchboard.
