Stronger Communities Fund Major Projects Program


Inner West Council has an exciting opportunity to invest in community infrastructure with a $15 million grant from the NSW Government's Stronger Communities Fund.

With $1 million set aside for the Inner West Stronger Communities Grants Program, $14 million is earmarked for major projects such as parks, footpaths, stormwater and community facilities. The community’s choice will determine the priority focus area on which the funds are invested. The projects that are funded will be delivered over the next three years.

Council has undertaken that the option with the highest community support will be endorsed and that the Stronger Communities Fund Assessment Panel is to allocate projects and funds accordingly.

Individual appropriate projects will be scoped and costed and then a list will be provided to the Stronger Communities Fund Assessment Panel.

The Panel will assess the projects and its recommendations will go to Council in December for a final decision.
