The $2 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Grants Program (formerly known as WestInvest) is funding transformational infrastructure projects to improve liveability across Western Sydney. 

A total of $2 billion has been awarded to community projects. This includes: 

  • Local Government Allocation – Approximately $400 million made available to the 15 eligible LGAs to advance local projects, with each local council eligible for between $20 million and $35 million, depending on population size. 
  • Competitive Round - $1.6 billion allocated through a competitive round of grants open to non-government organisations, including community groups, not-for-profits, Local Aboriginal Land Councils and local councils.
