The New South Wales Budget has been delivered, focusing on reforms targeting workplace participation, lifting productivity and assisting families with cost of living expenses.

An investment of $2.8 billion in housing will help first home buyers into the market, with the option to bypass stamp duty and pay a broad-based land tax.

Women were another key focus of this budget, with $5.6 billion to be invested over 10 years for improvement in workforce participation and childcare subsidies.

Parents will also be able to save on school-based costs, with all students in the state eligible for a $150 back-to-school voucher from January next year.Read MoreThe Australian
