Stronger Country Communities Fund now open

30 Sep 2017

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is investing in infrastructure projects in regional NSW communities to improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work. The NSW Government has committed $200 million over the next two years for applications to support local infrastructure projects that will improve amenity and help sustain the social bonds at the heart of strong regional communities including:
• building new community facilities (such as parks, playgrounds, walking and cycle pathways)
• refurbishing existing local facilities (such as community centres and libraries)
• enhancing local parks and the supporting facilities (such as kitchens and toilet blocks).

Communities are encouraged to identify project proposals that meet community needs and aspirations and discuss with the Council. Priority will be given to projects that provide local jobs and support local businesses. The Stronger Country Communities Fund is available to all 92 NSW regional local government areas (outside Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong), Lord Howe Island and the Unincorporated Far West.

State government agencies and non-government organisations can submit eligible community infrastructure projects, in partnership with local councils.
