Join us in the new DPIE Connects series for 2021.

The NSW Government has established the Smart Places Acceleration Program, which implements Action 8 of the NSW Smart Places Strategy. The Program is facilitated by a $45 million funding envelope under the Digital Restart Fund over three years to accelerate the development of smart places across NSW.

The NSW Smart Places Acceleration Program will see the State Government partner with councils, government agencies, property owners, and regional organisations to accelerate smart technologies and capabilities.

The Program will:
• Support economic and community recovery post COVID-19.
• Encourage partnerships with and co-investment from local councils and industry to deliver smart place initiatives.
• Support advancement and implementation of the NSW Smart Places Strategy.
• Ensure NSW remains the leading state in implementing Smart Places initiatives.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Smart Places Acceleration Program including an understanding of what types of projects can be funded, eligibility requirements and how to get involved. A panel discussion will also take place on how smart technology can improve outcomes for places and communities, followed by an opportunity to ask questions about the Smart Places Acceleration Program.
