Stronger Country Communities Fund

HAVE YOUR SAY

The Stronger Country Communities Fund has been established by the NSW Government
to support regional communities and help deliver local infrastructure projects.
The purpose is to provide the kind of infrastructure that improves the lives of local residents.
As a result, this fund will also ensure regional communities across NSW
remain attractive and vibrant places to attract residents
and new visitors. 

The Stronger Country Communities Fund targets infrastructure projects in regional NSW to ‘improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work'.
 
Council is seeking input from the community to help shortlist projects for this grant program.   Council must work within strict deadlines set by the NSW Government for the application process, so it is important that everyone nominates any relevant project for consideration before 31 March 2018.
