The Local Sports Infrastructure Fund is also a key component of the government’s new suite of infrastructure investment programs including the World Game Facilities Fund, Community Cricket Program and Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program.
The Government acknowledged Wyndham City Council for its commitment and financial contribution to the project.
