Since 2017, the Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF) has supported more than 1000 local projects that make regional communities even better places to call home.
In Round One, the NSW Government invested $100 million to improve community facilities such as town halls, recreation facilities, shared paths and playgrounds. Through Round Two, the NSW Government invested a further $200 million to provide high quality community and sports-related infrastructure.
Round Three will provide an additional $100 million for community projects in regional NSW, with at least $50 million for youth-related projects. The third round of the Stronger Country Communities Fund increases the total value of the Regional Growth Fund to $1.7 billion across over 1500 projects.
