Community Development Grants Programme

The Australian Government has established the Community Development Grants Programme to support needed infrastructure that promotes stable, secure and viable local and regional economies.

The Programme will fund projects including the 2013 election commitments and some identified uncontracted projects from the Regional Development Australia Fund and Community Infrastructure Grants Program.

More than $300 million is available under the Community Development Grants Programme for single year or multiple years projects. Funding for projects range in value from $2,000 to $13 million.

Funding will commence in the 2013-14 financial year and will cease on 30 June 2017. Multi-year projects must be scheduled for completion and final payment made on or before 30 June 2017.

The Department will advise proponents how projects can be progressed.
