The Narromine Shire Council has allocated $110 000 of the $1 million funding to its Community and Economic Stimulus grants program, which was announced in December 2018.
The program is for capital works programs put forward by community groups and organisations. Applicants were invited to apply for up to $20 000 to undertake each project.
Out of the 20 projects submitted 12 had their funding confirmed.
Community groups and organisations have been informed of their successful outcome, with all projects required to be completed by May 31, 2019.
"We would like to thank the Australian Government for their continued support of our community through the Drought Communities Program," Phil Johnston, Acting General Manager of Narromine Shire Council said.
"It is a welcome initiative during this difficult and prolonged drought and will allow the funds to go back into our community to support local businesses and people.
"Utilising this funding forms part of our commitment to develop and build partnerships with state and federal governments, industry and community organisations to foster development and delivery of community services and emerging business sectors, as outlined in our Community Strategic Plan."
