Councils and community groups in regional and rural New South Wales are eligible for a share of $160 million in Round 5 of the State Government’s  Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Acting Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales, Paul Toole, said the program has played an important role in the improvement of local regional communities.

“Round Five is about preparing local economies for future growth and making them even better places to live, play and raise a family,” Mr Toole said.

“Since its inception, the Stronger Country Communities Fund has provided $500 million to more than 2,000 grassroots projects, which are making a huge difference across every single Local Government Area in regional New South Wales.

“This round will continue to deliver vital community infrastructure to regional New South Wales, including facilities that are a part of our everyday lives such as bike paths, sports fields, main street upgrades, playgrounds and community centres.”

The $660 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the New South Wales Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local projects that improve the lives of people living in regional New South Wales.

Applications for Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund open Friday, August 5.
