Regional Relocation Grant

The Regional Relocation Grant is a one-off $7,000 payment that is aimed at assisting applicants with the costs of relocating from a metropolitan property to a regional property. It is reported that not as many people as expected have taken up the regional relocation grant and so if you were considering a sea change, this is the Governement's incentive. 'Regional' properties are to considered to be any properties that are NOT within the following council area:

  • The Council of the Municipality of Ashfield
  • Auburn City Council
  • Bankstown City Council
