The $841.6 million Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) supports the Australian Government’s commitment to create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities into the future.
There are two streams of funding available under the program:
- Infrastructure Projects Stream
- Community Investments Stream
The Infrastructure Projects Stream supports projects which involve the construction of new infrastructure, or the upgrade or extension of existing infrastructure that provide economic and social benefits to regional and remote areas.
The Community Investments Stream funds the following community activities, new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, and leadership and capability strengthening activities. These projects will deliver economic and social benefits to regional and remote communities. Infrastructure activities are not eligible for the Community Investments Stream.
We expect to hear the outcome of Round 5 mid 2021 and look forward to hearing of some successful outcomes for projects in our region.
In Rounds 1 to 4 of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF), $32,576,606 has been awarded to Infrastructure Stream projects and $1,416,401 has been awarded to Community Investment Stream projects in our region. For more details on successful projects in our region, please download the table below.
