Gurmesh Singh MP


Applications are open for the NSW Government’s $160 million Stronger Country Communities Fund Round Five, which will see even more investment in regional community infrastructure and programs.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said the latest round is a great opportunity for councils and community groups to seek funding for projects in our region that improve the quality of life for locals.

“This is great news for the Coffs Coast because it will bring enormous benefits to our community,” Mr Singh said.

“The NSW Government is delivering on its commitment to support investment in local communities, making our region an even better place to visit and live.

“I encourage all eligible applicants to review the guidelines and submit an application by 23 September.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the latest round of the Stronger Country Communities Fund builds on the previous rounds and continues to provide important infrastructure and programs for regional towns.

“The Stronger Country Communities Fund is continuing to make a real difference to the lives of people right across regional NSW, with $500 million invested over the past four rounds delivering more than 2,000 local projects in regional NSW,” Mr Toole said.

“The NSW Government is investing record amounts to deliver the big picture infrastructure needed to stimulate regional economies, but we’re also backing community projects that make a big positive difference to everyday life.”
