About the Program
The Regional Growth Fund will provide grants of $10 million or more for major transformational projects which support long-term economic growth and create jobs in regions, including those undergoing structural adjustment.
Selection of projects will be undertaken in two stages. Stage One required the submission of an Initial Application for competitive assessment. Stage Two is for the submission of a Full Business Case.
Initial Applications closed on 27 April 2018.
Individual grants will be published on the Australian Government’s grants information system GrantsConnect at www.grants.gov.au and on this webpage.
