Regional Tourism, infrastructure and local jobs are at the forefront of this round of funding with $45 million earmarked to increase tourism.

Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey says tourism is a vital component of regional communities, driving jobs, growth and many economic opportunities.

Under previous rounds Peterborough received almost $9 million funding to build a reticulated waste water management system and Port Pirie’s Regional Sports Precinct received $5 million. 

Applications close on 15 November 2018. Further information on eligibility and how to apply is available at http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/bbrf
