Nominate now for Monaro community funds


Tuesday, 22 August 2017

Member for Monaro John Barilaro is excited to announce that local businesses and community groups in the Queanbeyan-Palerang local government area are invited to pair with the local council to nominate community infrastructure projects for funding under the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

“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,” Mr Barilaro said.

“This funding will enable projects that the Monaro community needs and wants, making them even more vibrant places to live and work.

“Although council will submit all applications to the fund, 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.”

Mr Barilaro 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 make 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.
