HCCDC oversees the administration of key NSW Government Funds and sponsorships, including the Newcastle Port Community Contribution Fund (NPCC) and the Newcastle Mines Grouting Fund.
From 2011 to 2018, HCCDC administered the Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund (HIIF), which is now closed.
Newcastle Port Community Contribution Fund
The Newcastle Port Community Contribution Fund supports community infrastructure around the Port of Newcastle to improve amenity and community access to spaces around the Port.
Under this initiative, no less than $1 million per year will be made available under the Newcastle Port lease agreement.
Newcastle Mines Grouting Fund
NMGF was set up as a pilot program in 2015 to address the issue of local mine subsidence and its impact on development within the Newcastle CBD. It is designed to promote new investment by giving financial certainty about the cost of mine remediation. It also includes an investigation program to better understand the condition of former mine workings and design remediation strategies.
Community Sponsorship Programs
HCCDC is committed to supporting the community through its sponsorship program, supporting a range of organisations and events that align with our strategic objectives.
