Hume City Council Mayor, Carly Moore said, “The Growing Suburbs Fund is vital to delivering community infrastructure for a city that is growing as quickly as Hume. 

“An announcement that more than $2.7 million will be delivered for important projects across Hume is very welcomed news.  

“It is a great example of what can be achieved for our community when all levels of government work in partnership to deliver a shared outcome.”
