National Priority Fund Projects

National Priority Fund Project Organisation Description
The Regional Employment Agricultural Project (REAP) Northern Settlement Services

The Regional Employment Agricultural Project (REAP) matches the training and employment needs of participants with local industry needs and economic development priorities. It aims to increase the workforce participation of the Ezidi refugee and other migrant communities in the agriculture industry around Armidale.

The REAP is establishing a farming enterprise to deliver practical skills development and experience, formal language training, tailored accredited and non-accredited training as well as providing wrap-around services.

Significant contributions from key community partners are proving integral to the success of the project. One key partner, the Rotary Club of Armidale, has donated land and continues to provide expertise.
