The Carriageworks funding has been re-instated.
Just five days after our Powerhouse win, on Friday the government announced a plan to reinstate funding to Carriageworks to save it from voluntary administration as well.
The NSW Government have committed to granting Carriageworks an initial 10-year lease over the Eveleigh railyards and five years guaranteed funding.
While we are yet to see the details of the proposal, a long term lease and a commitment to future annual funding of $2.5 million were two conditions that the KPMG administrator said needed to be met for the organisation to avoid liquidation.
Thank you to the 5,005 people who signed our petition calling on the government to reset their funding priorities and guarantee funding to keep Carriageworks alive. Your support has helped to make this win happen.
