Building our Regions

Building our Regions is a $445 million targeted regional infrastructure program for local government projects. The purpose of the program is to provide funding for critical infrastructure in regional areas of the state that meet the specific needs of regional communities and supports economic development, including generating jobs.

To date, Building our Regions has allocated $225 million across 174 projects.

Round 4

The $70 million Round 4 is currently underway for all regional councils eligible under the Regional Capital Fund, Royalties for Resource Producing Communities Fund, and Remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities Fund.

From the expressions of interest received, 53 projects have been shortlisted. Business case applications have now closed.

Successful projects are expected to be announced in late 2018.

The funds

There are four focused infrastructure funds under the program. The three funds managed by the department include:

  1. Regional Capital Fund
  2. Royalties for Resource Producing Communities Fund
  3. Remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities Fund.

The fourth fund is the Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS), managed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads. The Building our Regions program provides a $150 million boost to this fund over five financial years. Information about TIDS is available at
