BBRF Round 4 – Community Investment Stream – Drought Support – Now Open
14 November, 2019
The Round 4 Community Investments Stream supports projects benefiting local communities in drought-affected areas. Through these projects, it aims to provide both economic and social benefits.
The $841.6 million Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) supports the Australian Government’s commitment to:
- create jobs
- drive economic growth
- build stronger regional communities into the future
For Round 4 there is a total of $200 million available.
The Community Investments Stream will fund new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, or leadership and capability strengthening activities that provide economic and social benefits to regional and remote areas.
Grants of between $5,000 and $1 million are available. However, given the nature of eligible projects we expect most grants will be under $100,000.
For most projects grant funding will be up to either 50% or 75% of your eligible project costs. Your location will determine the percentage of grant funding you can receive.
You may apply for a partial or full exemption to your cash contribution if you can demonstrate that you are experiencing exceptional circumstances.
For small projects with a total grant amount of equal to or less than $20,000, grant funding will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs.
Your project will need to deliver economic and social benefits to a regional or remote community.
