Premier pledges hundreds of millions in funding for drought-ravaged communities

The NSW Premier has announced the upcoming State Budget will include hundreds of millions of dollars to support the state’s drought-ravaged areas.

The $355 million package will help to extend emergency drought support for farmers and fast track investment in regional infrastructure.

This brings the government’s total expenditure on drought support to more than $1.8 billion.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian tells Ray Hadley the package will help fund critical town water and infrastructure projects to help communities get back on their feet.

“We know that the drought’s gone much beyond the farm gate. It’s affecting people who work in trade, in contract, in a whole range of industries.

“Today’s package focuses on providing local infrastructure to generate jobs in these rural communities.”
