Growing Local Economies

Growing Local Economies provides organisations with funding to develop economically significant infrastructure in regional NSW.
Application detail:

There will be a temporary pause on new applications effective 14 July 2019 while a review of this program is undertaken.


What do you get?

Funding varies on a case-by-case basis.

Who is this for?

NSW organisations.


Growing Local Economies provides funding to entities to undertake infrastructure projects of economic significance in regional NSW. Projects must demonstrate improved outcomes for regional communities, and where possible support local procurement, job creation and skills development.

It is expected that the smallest projects will be valued at approximately $1 million.

What are the eligibility criteria?

To be eligible, your project must:

  • be delivered within an eligible local government area
  • have a minimum project size of $1 million
  • have the capacity to deliver jobs and economic growth
  • help regional communities capitalise on their strengths or broaden or reposition their industry base.

The Growing Local Economies fund targets public and common use infrastructure - for example, multiple electricity or gas connections on council land that can be used by businesses. Projects that are on private land and have no clear public benefit will be considered ineligible.
