If you are a migrant currently working or thinking of relocating to a regional area, it is worthwhile looking into whether you are eligible for relocation assistance.
As part of developing regional Australia, relocation grants of up to $10,000 per worker are available to help attract skilled employees to regional NSW businesses operating in eligible industries. These will help businesses meet the costs of relocating employees, such as for furniture removal and temporary accommodation for up to three months.
Grants are available for businesses relocating to regional NSW and businesses already operating and expanding within regional NSW, to assist with the costs of relocating skilled workers in an occupation on the NSW Department of Industry Skilled Occupation List from metropolitan areas to regional NSW.
Grants will be available for businesses operating in NSW regional eligible industries. The funding is available to assist with the relocation costs of eligible skilled workers they employ that move from metropolitan areas to regional NSW.
Examples of eligible industries include:
New South Wales government operates in several regional sectors including:
Far South Coast
Mid North Coast
These regions are responsible for maintaining and updating their unique skilled occupation lists, with most expecting to review their skilled lists in January 2019.
