NSW Reconstruction Authority – our work

We’re here to support people who are recovering from, or at risk of, natural disasters.

The NSW Reconstruction Authority is a state-wide organisation with a centralised team overseeing major projects, and far-reaching regional teams who are active in their communities across NSW.

Having the critical work and collective efforts of multiple teams under a single agency provides important opportunities to learn from a broad range of experiences and better help communities prepare for future disasters and recover and more effectively rebuild.

Northern Rivers

The NSW Northern Rivers region was the epicentre of the devastating February and March 2022 floods. 

 The Northern Rivers Reconstruction Corporation (NRRC) was established to rebuild Northern Rivers communities by coordinating planning, rebuilding and construction work across multiple government agencies. The work is spread across communities in the Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed local government areas. 

 The NRRC was dissolved on 31 October 2023 and incorporated into the NSW Reconstruction Authority. 

 Flagship programs like the region’s Resilient Homes Program will continue to run without pause, bolstered by additional resources under the NSW Reconstruction Authority.

The Hawkesbury–Nepean Valley Flood Risk Management Directorate (HNV) was formed under Infrastructure NSW before becoming part of the NSW Reconstruction Authority.

The multidisciplinary HNV will initially work on developing the state’s first local disaster adaptation plan, which will focus on flood risk in the Hawkesbury–Nepean Valley. This will build on its previous to prepare and support communities in western Sydney before, during and after emergencies.

Central West

The NSW Reconstruction Authority’s focus is to lead and coordinate the recovery and reconstruction of housing, essential assets and infrastructure following the devastating 2022 Central West floods.

Community is at the centre of this recovery effort, with the RA engaging with flood affected locals to help build a shared understanding of risk in the region.
