The Federal Government is providing $250 million for regional infrastructure development through the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF), with applications now open for Round 6.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, Barnaby Joyce, said, “This latest investment in new projects will build on the 298 fantastic regional projects that shared in $300 million in funding under the last round of the Building Better Regions Fund.
Funding under Round 6 takes the Federal Government’s total investment through the BBRF to $1.38 billion.
The BBRF supports economic and social infrastructure for the long-term benefit of regional communities.
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 close on Thursday, 10 February 2022.
