Funding applications are being called under Round 2 of the Stronger Country Communities Fund with a total of $1,182,312 available for social and sporting projects across the Lithgow LGA.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund aims to deliver local infrastructure to improve the quality of life for people in regional NSW. Funding is available for projects such as parks, community halls, sporting facilities, playgrounds and amenity blocks.

Over recent weeks, successful Round 1 Stronger Country Communities Fund projects have been announced including $1,042,308 for the Lithgow Adventure Playground, $109,110 for Lithgow Tennis Club and $225,198 for Lithgow Basketball Association. With a further $1,182,312 now available for Round 2 projects, Lithgow City Council is calling for project proposals from community and sporting groups.

Community and sporting groups should note that only Councils are eligible to submit Round 2 proposals therefore any groups wishing to have their projects considered must submit detailed and costed project proposals to Lithgow City Council by Friday 14 April 2018 in time for assessment by Council and lodgement by the 4 May 2018 closing date.

Council will first undertake an assessment of proposals submitted by community and sporting groups to determine if they meet the eligibility criteria with only the highest priority and best developed proposals to be submitted by Council to the Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Community and sporting groups can find information on the program here.

  • Information on how the project will help boost the livability of the local community.
  • Evidence on how the project will meet a community need, including who and how many people within the community will benefit from the project.
