Building Better Regions Fund Resources

Applications for Round Two of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) are open until the 19 December 2017.

High quality applications are sought for infrastructure projects and community capacity building initiatives that will create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities. 

There are two streams of funding available under the program:

  • Infrastructure Projects Stream supports projects which involve the construction of new infrastructure, or the upgrade or extension of existing infrastructure.
  • Community Investments Stream will fund community building activities including, but not limited to, new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans and leadership and capability building activities. 

We would encourage all Regional Development Australia Committees and potential applicants to visit the BBRF website and mapping tool, to assist in determining the eligibility of their project.

The Frequently Ask Questions document available at the BBRF website provides further details regarding the changes between rounds one and two.    

Similar to round one, the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science’s Business Grants Hub will be delivering the program on behalf of the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development. The Business Grants Hub can be contacted on 13 28 46.

Funding Round Two
Applications close at 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time on 19th of December 2017.
Announcement of successful projects is expected in 2018.
Further information, official guidelines and the application portal can be access on the Building Better Regions Fund website.
