The National Stronger Regions Fund invests in infrastructure projects which deliver economic benefit and address disadvantage.

There will be no further funding rounds under this programme.

During the 2016 Federal election, the Australian Government announced the new Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF), to support infrastructure and community initiatives in areas outside of major cities.

The new fund will assess projects in three categories depending on the size of the project.  This will mean applications for smaller grants will not be competing with large projects for funding.  Guidelines for the BBRF are currently being developed.  Interested parties are encouraged to monitor the Department's website for future announcements regarding the new fund.
