Applications open for third round of NSRF funding

Round three of the National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF) opened for applications on Friday 15 January 2016.

Not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to apply for amounts ranging from $20,000 to $10 million to fund infrastructure projects and invigorate growth in the Mid West.

For this third round of funding, applicants classified as “remote” and “very remote” will only contribute one dollar for every three NSRF dollars.

Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said applicants will receive the best outcome if they focus on three major points:

  • Demonstrating the economic benefit of the project beyond the period of construction;
  • Identification of the region’s comparative disadvantages; and
  • Ensuring the leveraged funds are confirmed

The window for posting applications to the NSRF will close on Tuesday 15 March 2016, and potential applicants are being urged to submit their applications early to avoid lodging errors which may be encountered as the deadline draws closer.

The program began in 2015 and provides more than $1 billion to fund regional infrastructure across regional Australia.
