Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has announced a $16,498,778 funding package for 19 projects across his electorate.
But no funding will come to Armidale after the council did not submit any local road projects for funding.
Uralla Shire Council will receive $516,000 for the Hawthorne Drive upgrade, while two councils, Gwydir Shire and Tenterfield Shire will receive $5 million and $4 million respectively.
Other councils to receive funding were Glen Innes Severn, Inverell Shire and Moree Plains Shire.
Mr Marshall said the major funding injection would act as a giant economic stimulus for those councils who could bring forward road projects they already had on their books or start new works they did not have the finances to undertake.
"These 19 projects will help generate and retain jobs, helping our region to rebuild and recover from the effects of drought, bushfires and now COVID-19," Mr Marshall said.
"These projects will also be instrumental in getting our agricultural sector and rural communities back on their feet."
