Over $3 million has been allocated to Mid-Western Regional Council and Narromine Shire Council to improve local facilities, as part of Round Two of the Stronger Country Communities Fund.
The new funding comes on top of funding announced in Round One, which has already been allocated to projects across the regions that will improve local amenities and community facilities.
Member for Dubbo,Troy Grant announced this week the Mid-Western region has been allocated $1,722,222.
“There was such an overwhelming response to Round One of this Fund, the NSW Government has decided to increase the funding for Round Two, and include dedicated funding for sports projects in the region,” Mr Grant said.
“We have already seen the sorts of valuable projects this fund can deliver for our communities, and I encourage locals and community groups to speak with your local council and myself, to put forward ideas for projects that you’d like to see happen as part of Round Two,” Mr Grant said
Stronger Country Communities project applications for Round Two open on March 12 and will close May 4, 2018.
