Regional NSW to get a big boost

The NSW Government Growth Fund is investing an additional $1.3 billion in regional infrastructure to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services.

Combined with the $300 million to drive regional tourism through the Regional Growth: Environment and Tourism Fund this brings to $1.6 billion the funding available for regional growth.

The NSW Government’s Regional Development Framework provides an overall vision for the Regional Growth Fund. The framework establishes a plan for regional development over the next 30 years that ensures every community across the state benefits from NSW’s economic success.

The Regional Growth Fund will invest in projects that facilitate regional development through six funds. These funds aim to enable essential infrastructure, support arts and culture, enhance and build sporting infrastructure, improve regional voice and data connectivity, invest in our mining-impacted communities, spur job creation and deliver local infrastructure.

In addition to established industries the program will also focus on advanced manufacturing, renewable energy and technology-enabled primary industries.

 Applications will be open to local government, regional organisations, industry and other community organisations. Check if your local government area is eligible.
