FUNDING TO STRENGTHEN SOCIAL HOUSING COMMUNITIES CLOSING SOON

Minister for Social Housing and the member for Goulburn, the Hon. Pru Goward MP has again encouraged community organisations in the Goulburn Electorate to apply for a share of $1.2 million in funding to help build or improve facilities for social housing tenants.

Round 4 of the Social Housing Community Improvement Fund (SHCIF) closes on Wednesday 13 December 2017.

Ms Goward said councils, not-for-profit organisations and private organisations can apply for grants between $35,000 and $50,000 to improve community social housing facilities.

“Funding from the SHCIF not only improves community facilities but can bring tenants, neighbours and the wider community together,” Ms Goward said.
“Projects can be as varied as physical improvements to amenities in social housing properties or improvements to parks, community facilities and gardens.”

Ms Goward said round 4 of the SHCIF is the final stage of the Government’s commitment to improving the livability of social housing communities.

“The SHCIF has seen $20 million invested in the improvement of close to 500 social housing properties around NSW,” Ms Goward said.

All grant applications must be for projects that can be completed within 12 months or by no later than 30 March 2019.
