Regional NSW relies on agricultural industries to sustain employment and economic activity. This funding provides the direct assistance many businesses need to recover from devastating losses due to the fires, in turn helping their wider, related industries to remain viable.
The Supply Chain Support Grants form part of the Bushfire Industry Recovery Program (BIRP) and facilitate the immediate, medium and long-term rebuilding of regional NSW’s agricultural industries by:
- helping producers to re-establish and support functional supply chains
- creating and retaining jobs
- strengthening local supply chains
- increasing value-add production and diversification.
