National Stronger Regions Fund

GRANT DETAILS

The Australian Government allocated $1 billion to the National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF) to support investment in priority economic and infrastructure areas – from freight and transport projects to convention centres and major multipurpose sports facilities. The Fund is investing in crucial infrastructure projects that are being conceived by local communities – and this approach is helping Australia’s regions invest in their own future.
