The fifth round of the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, which is aimed at projects that create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities, opened for applications on 12 January.
Building Better Regions Fund Round 5 will invest $200 million from the 2020-21 Budget into infrastructure projects and community investments located in, or benefiting, eligible areas outside the major capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and Canberra. Grants are available through two funding streams, Infrastructure Projects and Community Investments. The timeframe for applications is tight and the deadline for applications closes on Friday 5 March.
Morrison Low has built an expert team of financial analysts, economists, engineers and business case specialists who have developed an extensive track record of assisting councils prepare funding applications and undertake the technical economic and cost benefit assessments of projects.
We have also recently welcomed Tony Camenzuli to the team, with Tony joining the Sydney office in November 2020 as the in-house economist. His vast experience includes various economist roles in both local and state government, which is a proven record of his capabilities.
Morrison Low's experience and success rate means that councils can ensure they are building the best possible compelling case for funding under the highly competitive Building Better Regions Fund.
