Second round Building Better Regions Fund opens

Applications are now open for funding under the Building Better Regions Fund Round Two.

There are 2 streams available - Infrastructure Projects and Community Investments.

Applications close on 19 December 2017.

Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has urged organisations to apply for Round Two of the Australian Government's Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) with applications now open for funding to support further job creation and economic growth in regional and rural Australia.

Mr Ramsey said this program and its predecessors have been terrific for the Grey electorate, delivering more than $30 milion over the last four years.

Two successful projects in BBRF Round 1 were a Elliston fibre optic project and a project in Orroroo that will deliver a much needed wastewater system to the town.

"The fact BBRF has two streams - Infrastructure Projects and Community Investments -- means communities have even more flexibility in developing proposals. With submissions closing on 19 December for both streams, I encourage all eligible organisations to get their application in", Mr Ramsey said.
