The Growing Regions Program is now open!

Express your interest today to help grow your community with grants of up to $15 million to support projects building or upgrading community infrastructure.

The Growing Regions Program is now open for Expressions of Interest (EOI).

The program will invest in priority community and economic infrastructure projects across regional and rural Australia through two $300 million funding rounds.

Local government entities and incorporated not-for-profit organisations are invited to express their interest for grants of between $500,000 and $15 million through the program, which is transparent, competitive and merit-based.

The grants can be used to cover up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs, with lower co-funding requirements in place to support First Nations, disaster-affected and remote applicants to bring their projects to life.

Expressions of Interest applications close on 1 August 2023.
