Building a safer, stronger Regional NSW

Just one year after COVID-19 caused the deepest recession in 80 years, our economy is back to growth and there are more jobs than before the crisis.

The NSW Nationals in the state government are investing to keep NSW COVID-safe and to keep our recovery going, investing in people with more support to help ease the cost of living pressures for families, and transforming our state with real reform for the future.

The 2021-22 NSW Budget beds down a safe and strong recovery, makes the nation’s best services even better, and drives growth into the future, for a better quality of life for you and your family.

“This record funding will deliver legacy projects and historic benefit to regional communities for generations to come, because we know that the regions are unparalleled and there is nowhere else we’d rather be.”

NSW Deputy Premier and NSW Nationals Leader John Barilaro
