Our region

The NSW Northern Rivers region was the epicentre of the devastating February and March 2022 floods. The NRRC was established as a coordinating body and is best placed to prioritise and synchronise the significant reconstruction effort in the region.

The Resilient Lands Program is being delivered by the NRRC under the Resilient Homes Fund to deliver a sustainable supply of suitable land to deliver housing options in the Northern Rivers. The Resilient Lands Program is based on a number of key principles, including to ensure that: 

  • Improving outcomes for the Northern Rivers community is at the heart of our work, and
  • We work with residents, local businesses and the community to improve outcomes.

The NRRC is focused on establishing partnerships with key organisations and community to improve outcomes for flood impacted residents and the region. To date, the NRRC has established key partnerships with:
