The deadline to apply for the Coalition government’s highly anticipated Regional Growth Fund is fast approaching and we are calling for applicants to get cracking with only one month remaining to submit initial applications.
The $272 million Regional Growth Fund would support major projects in regional, rural and remote areas that delivered long-term economic benefits.
For communities like ours, outside the major capital cities, this is a unique opportunity to ‘think big’ on new or expanded projects, with 50 per cent of project funding on offer as part of the Coalition government’s focus on regional jobs.
Whether it’s transport and communications, tourism, manufacturing and primary industries, the Coalition government will invest a minimum of $10 million towards each successful infrastructure project.
The Regional Growth Fund will support additional investment for sustainable economic growth, including from the private sector, other levels of government, and non-profit organisations.
Initial applications will close on April 27, and all eligible organisations are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible.
The $272 million Regional Growth Fund will be a game-changer across Australia by unlocking government funding for projects that have the capacity to transform regional areas.
The Regional Growth Fund is an open invitation to everyone eligible who believes in regional and remote Australia to partner with the Coalition government to support positive change for the future.
Under the policy settings of the Coalition government, in the last year 420,700 jobs were created – that is on average, 1100 new jobs a day. I look forward to working together with local organisations to deliver more jobs and more opportunities throughout our region.
