About Building our Regions

The Building our Regions program has a long and successful history of supporting Queensland’s local governments to invest in essential regional infrastructure and creating flow-on economic development opportunities and jobs.

The program focuses on delivering more enduring economic outcomes for regional communities, with funds targeting job-creating infrastructure that will improve economic conditions and liveability.

Over $417 million in program funding has been approved towards 370 projects across 68 local governments and one town authority in regional Queensland, supporting an estimated 3002 jobs during construction and attracting additional investment of over $556.9 million from councils and other organisations.

Round 6 of the program provides funding to improve councils’ water supply and sewerage systems in regional communities and is jointly administered with the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water
