The city's tradesmen and builders will have no shortage of work soon as an affordable housing project gets under way.
The Griffin Green project is planed to deliver 40 new properties in its first stage, with the federal government kicking in $6 million from its Building Better Regions fund.
That funding announced on Friday, makes up $12 million, with Griffith City Council and Argyle Community Housing each contributing $3 million each.
"There will be plenty of work going forward to build this project," Mayor John Dal Broi said.
Council's $3 million contribution will be the construction of new roads, water and sewer connections and related infrastructure.
The 40 new properties will be a mixture of one, two and three bedroom homes, with 20 managed by Argyle Housing, 20 privately owned and 25 lots available for social housing.
"Something both state and federal governments have been spruiking for a while, not only in major cities, but regional areas," Councillor Dal Broi said.
A consultant's report helped frame how council's focus on developing the Griffith City Council Housing Strategy 2019 with affordable housing was a key part of that.
"The work that (council) staff have put into this to get the funding has been huge," Cr Dal Broi said.
Cr Dal Broi said the federal government funding was due to council 'having skin in the game' with a contribution, as well as willing partner.
"Argyle will manage the estate, they're experienced and they already have properties within Griffith," he said.
Work is set to begin this year and once Crown Land is acquired by Griffith council, a development application will be lodged.
The $6 million provided by the federal government for Griffin Green is part of the fourth round of the Building Better Regions Fund which amounted to $207 million nationally.
Deniliquin's town hall re-development, the Holbrook sporting complex, Finley RSL dining room upgrade, a refurbishment to Wentworth Long Day Care and replacement of Corowa Golf Club's watering system were also funded in the Farrer electorate.
"These game-changing projects will help ensure our region remains vibrant and strong and I know this announcement with boost both morale and prosperity after a really tough few years for many people across Farrer," Member for Farrer Sussan Ley said.
Stage one of Griffin Green is estimated to be complete by 2022.
Stage two will see 30 new private homes and 122 new social housing properties, the expected cost for that stage is $46.5 million and has an estimated completion date by 2025.
