Community Development Grants Programme
The Community Development Grants Programme will provide up to $342 million toward around 300 community projects across Australia. The Programme will fund projects including the 2013 election commitments and some identified uncontracted projects from the Regional Development Australia Fund and Community Infrastructure Grants Program.
Bulletpoint assisted the Greater Shepparton City Council to receive $7.19 million towards the Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct through the Regional Development Australia Fund Round Four.
This project will substantially expand the capacity of the 65 hectare Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct (GSRSP) by building new fields and facilities for a range of sports. It will provide modern infrastructure for the site, including a linking boulevard, fencing, landscaping, playgrounds,signage, car parks, traffic signals and supporting works.
The Community Development Grants Programme funding will support needed infrastructure that promotes stable, secure and viable local and regional economies. The Australian Government is committed to providing long-term improvements in social and economic infrastructure for communities across Australia.
The Community Development Grants Programme will be administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, which will undertake a value-for-money assessment against the programme guidelines to ensure transparency in decisions abou t funding election commitments.
In order for an assessment to be undertaken Community Development Grants Programme recipients will be required to provide detailed project information, including project outcomes and benefits, planning and costs and delivery timeframes.
The Community Development Grants Programme is not a competitive grants programme. Only projects identified by the Australian Government will be considered for funding under the Community Development Grants Programme. These projects include the 2013 election commitments and a number of uncontracted projects of the the previous Government.
General applications by organisations for projects not identified by the Australian Government will not be accepted by the Department. Funding proponents must be a legal entity and have an Australian Business Number (ABN) or an Australian Company Number (ACN) to receive funding under the programme. Projects proposals must be consistent with the intent of the announced commitment.
A list of Community Development Grant projects can be found on the Departments website at www.infrastructure.gov.au
