National Water Infrastructure Loan Facility

The $2 billion National Water Infrastructure Loan Facility (the loan facility) is available to provide state and territory governments with concessional loans to co-fund the construction of economically viable water infrastructure.

On 1 July 2018, the Regional Investment Corporation (the RIC) opened and assumed responsibility for the delivery of the loan facility. Details on how to apply are available on the RIC website.

On 27 April 2018, the Australian Government announced the first loan from the loan facility of $50 million for the Myalup-Wellington Project in Western Australia.

The loan facility is in addition to, and complements, the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund (the fund)—a key measure of the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper. A list of projects supported through these initiatives is available on the Water Infrastructure Project page.
