is now open for applications for both the Infrastructure Projects and Community Investments streams.

The most significant changes to the BBRF Guidelines are:
• project eligibility boundaries have changed; and
• projects located in an excluded area, may be eligible if they can clearly demonstrate significant benefits and employment outcomes which flow directly into an eligible area.

Visit the BBRF website…/building-better-regions-fund and mapping tool, to assist in determining the eligibility of the project.

The Frequently Ask Questions document available at the BBRF website provides further details regarding the changes between rounds one and two.

Similar to round one, the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science’s Business Grants Hub will be delivering the program on behalf of the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development. The Business Grants Hub can be contacted on 13 28 46.

Applications close at 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time on 19 December 2017. Announcement of successful projects is expected in 2018
