Background

Round Two will provide up to $200 million for projects that address the identified priorities of Regional Development Australia committees and have a strong regional impact.

Details of projects selected to proceed to full application are listed in the Resources Section (below).

Round Two is now closed. Decisions on successful projects will be available here shortly. The Department will advise all applicants of the outcome of their application. Detailed feedback will also be offered to all applicants.
