ADDITIONAL $1.8 MILLION FOR BLUE MOUNTAINS RECOVERY

The Commonwealth and NSW Governments have announced an additional $1.8 million to support the recovery efforts of the Blue Mountains community following the devastating fires in October 2013.



The Commonwealth and NSW Governments have announced an additional $1.8 million to support the recovery efforts of the Blue Mountains community following the devastating fires in October 2013.

Federal Minister for Justice Michael Keenan said the additional funding will include grants for programs to support small business and community organisations.

“This joint package will drive the economic and social growth of the Blue Mountains community over the next 18 months and build community preparedness for the future,” Mr Keenan said.

NSW Minister for Police and Emergency Services Michael Gallacher said this additional funding is on top of the $11.4 million the NSW and Commonwealth Governments provided to support the initial clean-up of the Blue Mountains.

“The NSW and Commonwealth Governments are providing the necessary staff support to the Blue Mountains City Council so that they are able to roll out this assistance for the longer term recovery.

“To continue assisting the Blue Mountains into the future, the NSW Ministry for Police and Emergency Services will also continue to Chair the Recovery Committee,” Mr Gallacher said.
