Community and Economic Resilience Package
City of Newcastle has developed a comprehensive community and economic support package designed to help locals through the unprecedented effects of COVID-19.
The package will initially see $5.5 million invested and includes interest free payment plans for rates, rent reductions on council-owned buildings, free online training packages, and community grants programs to support our vulnerable and emerging at-risk community members.
How can we support you?
With the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 crisis, our mission is to pursue agile programs and opportunities that will support our community’s well-being. Through the implementation of innovative support programs and financial resilience measures, our focus is on sustaining the community through this initial phase.
