Towns and communities surrounded by mining industries in Regional NSW are being guaranteed millions worth of financial support.

The NSW Government’s revamped Resources for Regions program, will deliver an additional $50 million worth of new infrastructure projects and community programs.

24 local councils, including the Mid-Western Region, will receive a base amount of $1 million, with a further $26 million weighted to the most mining-affected communities.

Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen said the changes that have been made to Resources for Regions will help create new jobs and drive economic growth.
