The Australian Government's Regional Growth Fund, announced on 2 March 2018, will provide grants of $10 million or more for major transformational projects which support long-term economic growth and create jobs in regions undergoing structural adjustment.

Projects must be located in Australia and in an eligible area or, if your project is located in an excluded area, you must clearly demonstrate how economic benefits flow directly into an eligible area.

A mapping tool is available to assist applicants determine the project or benefit location.

To be competitive your project must score highly against all three criteria:

  • Create Jobs
  • Drive Economic Growth
  • Build Stronger Regional Communities.

Selection of projects will be undertaken in two stages. Stage One requires submission of an Initial Application for competitive assessment. Stage Two is for the submission of a Full Business Case. Only successful applications to the Initial Application will be invited to submit a Full Business Case.

Applicants will be advised in writing of the outcome of their application once decisions have been made on which projects will be invited to submit a Full Business Case.
