Resources for Regions

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The NSW Government introduced the Resources for Regions Program in 2012 to support the ongoing prosperity of mining communities in regional NSW by providing vital infrastructure, economic opportunities, and positive social outcomes. 

Following advocacy by Singleton Council, the NSW Government undertook a review of the Resources for Regions program. As a result, a number of recommendations were made, including a guaranteed amount for mining-affected regions calculated on the level of impact, as well as broadening the scope of the program to include community programs in addition to infrastructure projects.

Those recommendations were incorporated into Round Seven of the Resources for Regions program, which was announced in Singleton by the Deputy Premier John Barilaro on Wednesday 24 June 2020. A minimum of $1 million is available in each eligible Local Government Area (LGA). Additional funding will be weighted to the most mining-affected communities using the mining employment location quotient in the relevant LGA.

The Resources for Regions Program is administered by the Department of Regional NSW.

ROUND EIGHT

Under Round Eight of the Resources for Regions program in 2021, $8,005,210 in funding was announced for the Singleton local government area.
