Federal, State & Local Grants & Assistance

New regional infrastructure funding

The Australian Government will be adopting a new approach to regional infrastructure grant funding which will include committing $1 billion in the Budget over three years to two new regional programs.

  • The Growing Regions Program will provide new opportunities for regional local councils and not-for-profit organisations to construct or upgrade community infrastructure through an annual open, competitive grants process.
  • The regional Precincts and Partnerships Program will provide a strategic, nationally consistent mechanism for funding and coordinating larger-scale projects that transform a place, to benefit communities in regional cities and wider rural and regional Australia.

Round 6 of the Building Better Regions Fund will not proceed.
