Southern Cross Credit Union is offering local community organisations the opportunity to apply for one of three $5,000 Community Grants.

Applications are invited from community groups and organisations improving accessibility and engagement in the areas of Art and Culture, Education, Sport and Recreation, Environment and Health and Well-Being.

In 2016 SCCU received an overwhelming response to the Community Grants program, receiving more than 50 applications from groups located across the Northern Rivers.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has unveiled a budget “that builds for the next generation” in his budget speech on 20 June 2017.

This year’s budget is said to prioritise investment in the “trifecta” of infrastructure, healthcare and hospitals, as well as education, however, a review of the budgeted spending shows that infrastructure is the key focus of this budget.

In good news for home buyers, the budget also includes significant savings on taxes related to purchasing property as part of the NSW government’s ‘First Home – New Home’ scheme, designed to address housing affordability.
