Funder: NSW – Regional NSW
Grant Background: The Stronger Country Communities Fund was established in 2017 by the NSW Government to deliver local projects that enhance the lives and wellbeing of regional communities.
The objectives of the fund are:
- to boost the liveability of communities in regional areas by providing new or upgraded social and sporting infrastructure or community programs that have strong local support
- to deliver enhanced infrastructure and programs that remove barriers to female participation in sport across regional NSW.
There is a total of $100million available in Round Four, including up to $50million for projects that enhance female sporting facilities and increase female participation in sport in regional NSW. The remaining funding is available for other local community and sporting infrastructure, street beautification, and community programs and local events.
