Resources for Regions

The Resources for Regions program is sourced from Restart NSW, the NSW Government’s fund for infrastructure to support economic growth and productivity.

Resources for Regions aims to support regional and rural NSW communities affected by mining by addressing infrastructure constraints.

Resources for Regions funded projects

Since 2012, $233 million has been allocated to 42 infrastructure projects in mining affected communities. These projects make a significant contribution to local communities.
