Introduction - Sector Development Grants

Overview

The Bushfire Industry Recovery Package – Sector Development Grants provide funding to support the medium to long-term recovery and resilience of the forestry, horticulture and agriculture (aquaculture, dairy, viticulture and apiculture) industries in New South Wales impacted by the bushfires from 31 August 2019. Funding is available for projects that will be delivered in the medium to long-term to help industry-wide recovery and rebuilding, with a focus on job creation via projects that will build industry sustainability, increase value-add production, support supply-chain efficiencies, product diversification and market expansion.

Sector Development Grants are one of two funding streams in the NSW Government’s $140 million Bushfire Industry Recovery Package. The Supply Chain Support Grants funding stream has separate Guidelines and will focus on projects that will be delivered in the immediate to short-term to help producers and businesses rebuild and recover, with a focus on retaining jobs and enabling future production.

The overall objective of the Bushfire Industry Recovery Package is to enable the recovery and resilience of key engine (driver) industries of forestry, horticulture and agriculture via supporting:

  • The immediate recovery needs of producers to enable a functional supply chain;
  • The creation and retention of jobs;
  • Strengthening local supply chains; 
  • Increasing value adding production and diversification.
