Stage One of Regional Growth Fund closing soon

Time is running out for developers in the Orana region to apply for a share of a $272M fund which has the power to transform entire communities.

“The Federal Government’s Regional Growth Fund supports long-term economic growth in regional Australia and has the potential to create jobs and build stronger regional communities,” RDA Orana executive officer Megan Dixon said.

The grant funding is expected to leverage investment from the private sector, not-for-profit organisations and other levels of government.

“The project will fund projects across a range of key economic categories including but not limited to transport and communications, tourism, manufacturing and primary industries.”

“It is really about creating the infrastructure that will deliver significant and sustainable benefits to the region.”

There is a two-stage process for assessment with an initial application to be followed by a full business case if the project is selected.

“Projects that proceed to the second stage will be required to submit comprehensive project management plans and other documentation.”

Stage One of the Regional Growth Fund closes at 5pm on Friday, April 27.
