Resources for Regions

Resources for Regions aims to address infrastructure constraints in our mining affected communities.

Since 2012, $233 million has been allocated to 42 projects. This includes infrastructure across the health, water, road, education and tourism sectors, as well as investment in CBD renewals to increase the attractiveness of regional NSW as a place to live and do business.

What’s the latest?

On 19 May 2017, the NSW Government announced an additional $50 million for the Resources for Regions program. Expressions of Interest closed on 18 August 2017. Projects will be shortlisted and applicants will be notified once confirmed.

More information on these programs and application process is available on the Regional Growth website.
