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 to support local infrastructure projects that will improve amenity and help sustain the social bonds at the heart of strong regional communities.
We will support projects that involve:
- 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).
Local councils must consult with their communities to identify project proposals that meet community needs and aspirations. We will give priority to projects that provide local jobs and support local businesses.
There are three application tranches scheduled for 2017 in round one. Councils must apply in the tranche which they have been assigned. Download the SCCF tranches list.
