Resources for Regions

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The NSW Government introduced the Resources for Regions Program in 2012 to support the infrastructure needs of NSW’s mining-affected communities. The Resources for Regions Program aims to support the ongoing prosperity of mining communities in regional NSW by providing economic opportunities, improved amenity 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 have been 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.
