A $300m Plan That Will Help Fast-Track Local Infrastructure Delivery In NSW

On Friday 19 August 2022, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet announced a new $300 million Accelerated Infrastructure Fund (AIF) to help communities accelerate the delivery of local infrastructure that supports housing supply in high-growth areas.


This forms part of the NSW Government's $2.8 billion 2022 housing package announced in the June State Budget. High-growth councils and state agencies are now eligible to apply for the extended third round of the Accelerated Infrastructure Fund Program.


This grant program will enable councils in Greater Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, and Wollongong to apply for a share of $180 million in funding, as well as councils in regional areas will receive a share of $120 million.


AIF aims to provide and build thousands of homes and residential programs to help the communities where they are needed the most.


Its about getting keys in doors and giving people the opportunity to own their own homes. To be able to unlock land and increase supply, our State needs the vital infrastructure in place to allow community growth this includes roads, sewerage systems, stormwater drains and parks.
