The NSW Government is taking a fresh approach to how it invests in regional NSW to make sure we can help meet the needs of all communities. This process is part of a new Regional Development Roadmap that includes the following key elements.

Regional Development Trust Fund

The NSW Government has committed an initial investment of $400 million into the Regional Development Trust Fund for sustainable and strategic investment with a focus on priorities that make a real difference to regional communities.

Regional Development Advisory Council

The role of the Regional Development Advisory Council is to provide the Minister for Regional NSW with advice on regional investment and economic development and ensure that the interests of rural and regional communities are at the centre of government decision-making.

Modernising the Regional Development Act 2004

The Regional Development Act provides a framework to support economic development and employment growth in regional NSW.

Modernising the Act will ensure transparency and accountability in how public funds are invested to deliver better outcomes in regional and rural communities.
