Nominate Now for Nambucca LGA Community Funds

The NSW Government is calling on councils, local businesses and groups in the Nambucca Local Government Area to nominate community infrastructure projects for funding under the first round of the Stronger Country Communities Fund that opens today.

“The Stronger Country Communities Fund will build new parks, playgrounds and pathways and refurbish local schools, health facilities, community centres, libraries and local parks for rural and regional communities,” Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey said.
“This funding will realise projects that the community needs.
“This first release is Tranche A, and it incorporates Nambucca Shire Council. Tranches B and C will open soon and will incorporate other councils on the Mid North Coast.

"Council will need to submit all applications to the fund and community groups are strongly encouraged to identify proposals that meet local aspirations and ensure their local councils are aware of their interest in accessing this funding.”
Mrs Pavey said the fund will support projects between $100,000 and $1 million, or higher with financial co-contribution.
“The Stronger Country Communities Fund is a once-in-a-generation investment in the facilities and services that makes our towns and regional cities the best places in NSW to live and work.”
The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to improve economic growth and productivity with investment in regional communities.
