Crown Land Managers across the Dubbo electorate are now able to apply for their share of $16 million in funding to maintain and improve Crown land reserves for community use.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said applications for the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund are officially open until November 17.
“This funding is essential to help us look after these facilities on behalf of the government, and I would strongly encourage eligible organisations to come forward,” Mr Saunders said.
“There is $14 million worth of grants and $2 million in loans on offer, which could go a long way to fund some essential projects across our region.
“The former Coalition Government funded several projects through the fund, like upgrades to the access driveway at Lake Windamere Under Canvas Camping reserve, new toilet facilities at Gollan Public Hall and the construction of a new clubhouse at the Gulgong Pony and Polocrosse Ground.
“The last round of support was also put towards upgrading the safety of power boxes and the purchase of a combination mower and tractor at Gulgong Showground.”
All Crown Land Managers can apply including local councils, community organisations, and user groups that are licensed to use Crown reserves across the Dubbo electorate, as well as commons and showgrounds on freehold land.
