While many Mudgee residents were out enjoying the start to the New Year on January 1, those in the city may have been busily planning their regional move. The NSW Government has made changes to their incentives, designed to bring young families, young professionals, small business owners and tradespeople to regional areas of NSW, including our beautiful town.
From January 1, the $7,000 Regional Relocation Grant became available to long-term Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong tenants for the first time. Furthermore, the Government have created an additional $10,000 Skilled Regional Relocation Incentive, aimed at those who can bring needed skills to regional areas. It seems the time is now to buy in Mudgee!
If you’re living in metro Sydney and would love to take advantage of the new Grants with a move to our gorgeous Mudgee, simply head over to the NSW Government website by clicking here. You’ll find more detailed information about how to qualify for the grants, how the two Grants are paid, and links to submit your application.
We see these changes as extremely positive, and our view seems to be shared with many of the Mudgee residents and Mudgee business owners we’ve been speaking with. We think these Grants will encourage a healthy Mudgee economy and help our region’s sustainability for many years to come. We’d love to know your thoughts.
