THE NSW Government has recently announced a Regional Relocation Grant. Commencing July 1, 2011, the scheme provides applicants with a one-off payment of $7000 to assist them with the cost of relocating from their metropolitan home to a regional home.
The metropolitan area means the local government areas of Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Gosford, Wyong, Wollondilly, Wollongong and Newcastle. The regional areas are participating local government areas which are located outside the metropolitan boundaries.
