As part of the NSW Government’s $2.3 billion Health and Economic Stimulus Package (COVID Stimulus), $25 million over two years has been allocated to fund maintenance and improvement works at showgrounds around the state.
Funding will be allocated in two phases with showground managers invited by their respective local members to submit funding proposals for consideration. Phase 1 (financial year 2019–20) proposals will be prioritised to expedite delivery of economic stimulus to local economies, while delivering showground maintenance and improvement outcomes.
All unsuccessful proposals for Phase 1 will be automatically included for assessment as part of Phase 2 (financial year 2020–21).
If you have any questions regarding the Showgrounds Stimulus Funding Program or require assistance in preparing a proposal application, contact the Showgrounds Stimulus Funding Project Team within the Crown Lands branch of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0435 956 796.
The deadline for funding proposals for 2019-20 financial year funding is 5pm, Friday, April 24, 2020.
The deadline for funding proposals for 2020-21 financial year funding is 5pm, Friday, May 29, 2020.
