Building Better Regions Fund Round Four: Drought Support

BBRF Focusses On Drought Support

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, has today announced the opening of Round Four of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).

Round Four is aimed at supporting drought-affected regions by targeting projects that will benefit communities affected by drought. Applications will be ineligible if projects are not located in a drought-affected location, and if satisfactory evidence is not provided to support the applicants claims. The BBRF Guidelines list examples of what evidence can be provided to support claims that projects are located in a drought-affected region.

The demand for BBRF from the communities is very strong. The first three rounds were highly competitive with just over 2,600 applications received, with 832 projects funded, totalling just over $643 million. Round Four provides an additional $200 million, giving further opportunity for eligible applicants to apply.

The closing date for applications is 19 December 2019.

The BBRF application portal is now open. The Guidelines and other supporting material is also available here.
