Building Better Regions Fund

Building Better Regions Fund Round 6 is now open

The $1.38 billion Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) supports the Australian Government's commitment to create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities into the future.

The fund invests in projects located in, or benefiting eligible areas outside the major capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and Canberra.

Grant funding is available through two funding streams:

  • The Infrastructure Projects Stream: Supports projects that involve construction of new infrastructure, or the upgrade or extension of existing infrastructure.
  • The Community Investments Stream: Funds community development activities including, but not limited to, new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, leadership and capability building activities

Round Six: The Australian Government announced $250 million in the 2021-22 Budget towards a sixth round of the BBRF.

The Round Six Grant Opportunity Guidelines, consistent with the existing BBRF framework, are now available on the Business Grants Hub website, along with other supporting documents, to assist potential applicants.

Details of successful projects under each round, program guidelines, contact details for enquiries, and other program information is available on the Building Better Regions Fund website.

Applications close 10th February 2022
