Enhancing our cultural precincts and community infrastructure

The Victorian Government has committed $22 million for the enhancement of cultural precincts and community facilities in Victoria. Of this funding package, $10 million has been invested in Melbourne's long-established Chinese, Greek and Italian precincts, through the Cultural Precincts Enhancement Fund. A further $12 million has been committed to improve cultural precincts and community infrastructure across Victoria through the new Cultural Precincts and Community Infrastructure Fund. The funding is aimed at infrastructure projects that will secure the sustainability and longevity of our community assets for future generations.
