Expressions of Interest are now open for the NSW Government’s $175 million Growing Regional Economies Fund.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the fund will see investment in transformational infrastucture and facilities that will unlock housing and activate economic and jobs growth across the Dubbo electorate.
“Our region is a great place to live, work, play and invest, and we want to make sure it stays that way!” Mr Saunders said.
“This fund will help ensure our communities have the infrastructure and services they need for a strong future.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the fund will only increase the appeal to live and invest in regional NSW.
“Our regional communities are growing faster than ever before, and this is creating exciting opportunities for infrastructure, business and economic investment across the State,” Mr Toole said.
“Housing must come hand-in-hand with these investments, and the projects supported by this Fund could include roads and other utility connections; the kind of enabling infrastructure needed to set the foundation for further housing growth.”
The $175 million Growing Regional Economies Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local projects that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
Expressions of Interest open on 8 February 2023, and close on 23 May 2023.
