Member for Bega Andrew Constance has advised that applications are now open for round 2 of the NSW Boating Program which is set to commit $17 million to improve boating facilities across NSW.

“We’re thrilled to put out a call for applications for the next round of the $70 million NSW Boating Now program, a NSW Government initiative to deliver accessible, modern and safe boating infrastructure where it’s needed most,” Mr Constance said.
“This adds to the $37.5 million which was allocated in 2015 to 192 round one priority projects which are currently being delivered and are already making a massive improvement to boating facilities in regional communities.
“These projects were identified during consultation with the people who use these waterways the most to ensure that every project delivered through the program helps provide a great boating experience in NSW.”
Councils, community groups and the boating industry are invited to submit applications for funding, which will be allocated according to the 11 Regional Boating Plans developed in consultation with Councils, stakeholders and waterways users.
“This is about giving keen boaters everywhere what they need – better quality facilities and continual improvements in safety and accessibility,” Mr Constance said.
“Under round 2, consideration will be given to priority projects that were identified during consultation on the Regional Boating Plans and any new projects identified by Councils or other delivery partners.”
