Federal Member For Banks
Shadow Minister for Communications


Applications under Round One of the Australian Government’s landmark $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund are now open.

Federal Member for Banks, David Coleman, said that the Fund provides a great opportunity for organisations to apply for funding for local infrastructure projects.

“Over the past twelve months, many local organisations have approached me with plans and ideas for important infrastructure projects. The Fund provides a good opportunity to act on these ideas”, Mr Coleman said.

“The Fund will support a range of local initiatives that are designed to spur economic growth – from transport projects, to major community and sporting facilities”.

The National Stronger Regions Fund will provide local community projects with between $20,000 and $10 million, covering up to 50 per cent of costs.

Applications for grants under the National Stronger Regions Fund are open until 28 November 2014.
