Building Better Regions (BBRF) Round 5

The Australian government has announced $200M ($100M for tourism related infrastructure projects) as Round 5 of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF)

Welcome 

The Australian government has announced $200M ($100M for tourism related infrastructure projects) as Round 5 of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) to support the creation of jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities into the future. The funding aims to encourage more Australians to travel and experience a home-grown holiday, boosting regional jobs and local economies.

BBRF Round 5 will be delivered like the previous four rounds, with Infrastructure Project and Community Investment streams. Grant Opportunity Guidelines will be made available shortly, consistent with the existing BBRF framework, to assist potential applicants.

There are two streams of funding available under the program: The Infrastructure Projects Stream and the Community Investments Stream.

BBRF applications can be lodged until the closing date of 5th March 2021. 

The BBRF information portal can be accessed at www.business.gov.au/bbrf. Previous Guidelines and other supporting material are also available here.
