The $1.04 billion Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) supports the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications commitment to:

  • drive economic growth
  • build stronger regional communities into the future.

For Round Five, there is a total of $200 million available, with $100 million dedicated to tourism-related infrastructure projects.

The Infrastructure Projects Stream supports projects that provide economic and social benefits to regional and remote areas. The projects can be either construction of new infrastructure or the upgrade or extension of existing infrastructure. The Infrastructure Projects Stream only supports investment ready projects.

For most projects grant funding will be up to either 50% or 75% of your eligible project costs. Your location will determine the percentage of grant funding you can receive.

Your project will need to deliver economic and social benefits to a regional or remote community.
