LOCAL councils, social and sporting groups and charities along the NSW/Queensland border can now access funding for projects that improve liveability in their communities, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today welcoming the opening of the Cross-Border Commissioner’s COVID Recovery Infrastructure Fund.

Mr Marshall said grants from $25,000 would be available to deliver projects that enhance infrastructure, services and amenities, over the next three years.

“The Cross-Border Commissioner’s Infrastructure Fund works with other jurisdictions to ensure communities have access to essential services like telecommunications or quality public facilities,” Mr Marshall said.

“The Moree Plains Shire is already seeing the benefit of this significant program, with $863,197 announced earlier this year for the Moree Plains-Balonne Cross Border Digital Connectivity Project.

“To overcome telecommunication black spots impacting businesses and residents along the border, the Moree Plains and Balonne Shires are working to upgrade broadband internet infrastructure between Mungindi, Goondiwindi and Moree.

“These innovative projects, which work to reduce the feelings of isolation often experienced by border communities, are exactly what the Cross Border Commissioner’s Fund is there to support.”

Proposals require co-investment, proportionate to the benefit, from the neighbouring jurisdiction or private partner/s.

The COVID Recovery Round expressions of interest close are now open and close on 28 January 2022.

Applicants can contact the Office of the NSW Cross-Border Commissioner by email at enquiries@cbc.nsw.gov.au
