The funding and delivery of infrastructure forms a key part of planning for local communities. Providing the correct infrastructure in the right place at the right time supports the continued delivery of new homes and jobs throughout New South Wales.

 

To date over $1.2 billion has been committed towards funding infrastructure in NSW through the Department’s capital grants programs, including the Housing Acceleration Fund, Special Infrastructure Contributions, State Planning Agreements and the Local Infrastructure Growth Scheme.
