National Stronger Regions Fund round three open
APPLICATIONS are now open under Round Three of the $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund for funding priority infrastructure projects in disadvantaged regional communities.
Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said Round Three is open to submissions from local governments and not-for-profits from today until March 15.
"As in previous rounds, I encourage applicants to put forward projects that demonstrate strong economic outcomes and address identified disadvantage, to give themselves the best opportunity for success," Mr Truss said.
"Funding will be targeted to projects which deliver strong outcomes for local communities."
Across the first two rounds, the Australian Government approved $505 million to fund 162 projects across the nation.
