Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF)

The Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) will create jobs, drive economic growth and support strong regional communities across Australia by funding infrastructure and community investment projects.

The BBRF invests in eligible projects in regional and remote Australia, outside the major capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and Canberra.

Grant funding is available through two funding streams:

  • The Infrastructure Projects Stream supports projects that involve 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.

Nearly $500 million is available through this program, including $200 million provided from the Regional Growth Fund allocated in the 2017-18 Budget.

Round one of the BBRF has now closed and applications are being assessed. Please monitor this website for any announcements regarding the outcome of round one and information regarding future rounds of the BBRF.

Program Guidelines, contact details for enquiries, and other program information is available on www.business.gov.au/bbrf.
