Canowindra community groups are invited to submit projects that may be suitable for funding under the second round of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund grants program.

The Government is providing funding for projects to make communities more attractive places to live and work.

New infrastructure, such as parks, playgrounds and cycle tracks, are being earmarked, along with refurbishments to existing facilities including community centres and libraries. Enhancing local parks and supporting facilities, such as kitchens and toilet blocks, will also be considered.

There is no cap on the cost of projects, but each must be worth at least $100,000. Projects must be submitted through Cabonne Council which will prioritise them and submit applications to the Government.

Projects should be submitted to the Council before the end of January 2018.

Cabonne Mayor Kevin Beatty said: “Your project should be ready to commence immediately after any funding announcement.”
