The NSW Nationals in the state government have unveiled a $300 million plan to fast-track the delivery of essential infrastructure and unlock tens of thousands of homes across the state.
Under the plan, 41 councils experiencing high growth will be able to apply for a share of the latest round of the Accelerated Infrastructure Fund (AIF).
More than half the councils are in the regions.
The AIF program is being extended for a third round, to help councils roll out critical infrastructure projects that support the delivery of much-needed new homes.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said 23 of the 41 eligible councils were in the regions, demonstrating the NSW Government’s commitment to helping eliminate housing pressures right across the state.
“When you build a house, you’ve got to lay the foundations first. This funding lays the foundations to unlock more land and build thousands of homes in the communities where they’re needed the most,” Mr Toole said.
