With a focus on growth into the future, new projects can receive a share of $250 million in federal funding available under the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).
The BBRF supports economic and social infrastructure for the long-term benefit of regional communities by creating jobs and helping them rebound strongly from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Local governments and eligible incorporated not-for-profit organisations can again apply for grants of $5000 up to $10 million to cover 50% or more of eligible project costs.
Round 6 projects will be funded under two streams:
- The Infrastructure Projects Stream supports the construction of new infrastructure, or the upgrade or extension of existing infrastructure.
- The Community Investments Stream funds community development activities including - but not limited to - new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, leadership and capability building activities.
Applications are now open and will close February 10.
