Featured Opportunity - Establishing a Gas Community Benefits Fund

The NSW Government has released Establishing a Gas Community Benefits Fund: Discussion Paper

It is proposed that the fund will enable communities in which the gas industry operates to receive funds from gas activities.

Local projects will be funded by contributions from gas companies and from the NSW Government through a reduced royalty take. The  Government says the fund  will  allow  for  communities  in  which  the  gas  industry  operates to  benefit  from those activities.

Feedback and suggestions are invited from landholders, communities and stakeholders on options for a preferred model for the fund until 17 July 2015. Read more and have your say.
