You may be eligible to apply for the NSW Government’s Regional Relocation Grant.
The Regional Relocation Grant (the Grant) provides a one-off $7,000 payment to approved applicants to assist with the cost of relocating from a metropolitan area to a regional area.
From January 2014 the following amendments to this grant apply:
- expanding eligibility for the $7,000 Regional Relocation Grant to include long-term renters (2 continuous years in one or more homes) in metropolitan Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong
- introduction of a new Skilled Regional Relocation Incentive – worth $10,000 – to encourage people to relocate for jobs unfilled by the local workforce. The grant will be paid in two instalments. The grant will be linked to secured employment, rather than home ownership
- both grants to be capped with that year’s Budget allocation – $10.4 million in 2013-14
