The NSW Government has committed $209 million to help bushfire-affected landholders with the cost of rebuilding boundary fences adjoining public lands.

Private landholders who share a boundary with public land and were impacted by the Northern and Southern fires of late 2019 and early 2020 are eligible to receive up to $5,000 per kilometre to contribute to the replacement of damaged boundary fences. Grants can be issued retrospectively to cover costs already incurred by landholders.

For more information visit the Local Land Services website.

Final funds to be allocated no later than June 30, 2021.

All boundary fencing must be completed no later than 31 December 2021.
