Bushfire Recovery Funding for Lithgow LGA

Lithgow Council will receive up to $250,000 of funding under the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund to assist the region in the recovery from last summer’s horrific bushfire season.

Large sections of the local government area were impacted by the 2019/20 fires, making the council eligible for funding to support its vast recovery process. This joint Commonwealth and NSW governments funding arrangement allows investment in projects that will directly benefit recovery efforts and help communities rebuild.

Mayor Ray Thompson welcomed this support for locally led recovery.

“The Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund is a commitment to supporting bushfire impacted communities on their journey to recovery,” Mayor Thompson said.

“We know that community-led recoveries provide the best chance for people to get back on their feet. Ensuring the correct level and type of support is provided for residents and towns to come out the other side with even greater resilience and hope for the future”.

The fund is available thanks to joint Commonwealth Government and State Government Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements. The BCRRF is administered by Resilience NSW.
