The NSW Government has launched the Regions of Welcome (NSW GROW) Pilot Program, which aims to attract and retain newcomers, and to assist with relocation to regional NSW.
The Coordinator General for Settlement, Professor Peter Shergold AC said “NSW GROW will address critical workforce needs in regional areas that would usually be filled through overseas migration.”
“This Program will support coordinated efforts across sectors to create secondary migration linkages between western Sydney and regional NSW and drive sustainable social and economic outcomes for participating regional communities and newcomers alike.”
The Australian Red Cross and Regional Development Australia will support delivery of NSW GROW in western Sydney, and the Murray and Riverina regions.
