Financial Assistance Grants Helping Councils To Deliver
Hornsby and Parramatta Council have received $2,219,700 and $4,770,335 in Federal Government grants respectively to help council deliver vital services and infrastructure.
The Financial Assistance Grants scheme provides funding in two parts – the first is open for councils to use on local priorities, while the second is specifically for roads.
Member for Epping, Damien Tudehope said that the initiative gives council the freedom to fund projects that the community needs the most.
NSW Local Government Minister, Gabrielle Upton, welcome the funding, which the NSW Government administers.
“We want every dollar that goes into Local Government to count for every ratepayer,” Ms Upton said. “This Federal Government program provides councils with another boost to support local projects and services.”
