Communities in the region are set to benefit from joint Australian and NSW government funding for locally based projects as part of the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund (BCRRF).
Member for Hume Angus Taylor and member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said a number of groups have been awarded over $1,300,000 to promote community wellbeing and build disaster resilience in the region.
Mr Taylor said the projects have been driven locally, with governments throwing their support behind community-led solutions.
"This funding is supporting a locally led recovery that focuses on community wellbeing, connectedness and future disaster resilience," Mr Taylor said.
"The NSW Government is building a safer and stronger region by continuing to deliver funding to our bushfire affected communities."
Mrs Tuckerman said the BCRRF grants were just one example of bushfire funding in Goulburn Mulwaree, Upper Lachlan, the wider Canberra Region Joint Organisation area and Wingecarribee Shire Council.
The following projects have been funded under the program:
Deputy premier and Minister for Disaster Recovery, John Barilaro, said the projects will provide an important boost for local communities with a focus on long-term recovery efforts.
"The Government is committed to bushfire recovery with every bushfire affected LGA receiving support," Mr Barilaro said.
"These recovery efforts have been driven by locals who care about their communities and want to make a difference and we are continuing to assist them through this process.
"The nature of these grants are locally led and diverse, depending on the needs of the communities, with projects targeted at issues like mental health and assisting local businesses.
"The number of high-quality submissions we received is a credit to the ingenuity and resilience of our regions and I am pleased to see more support going out to every corner of our state."
If anyone requires recovery support they are encouraged to contact the bushfire customer care line on 13 77 88, or visit the Service NSW website at www.service.nsw.gov.au
