Maranoa community groups encouraged to apply for Growing Regions Program

Federal Member for Maranoa and Leader of The Nationals, David Littleproud, is pleased to announce that the Federal Government’s Growing Regions Program is now open for applications. 

Not-for-profit organisations and government entities are invited to make and submit an Expression of interest (EOI) for Round 1 of the Growing Regions Program.

Grants worth between $500,000 and $15 million are available to support capital works projects for community and economic infrastructure across rural and regional Australia.

Member for Maranoa, David Littleproud, encourages all community groups across the Maranoa electorate to put forward their submissions and get their fair share of the funding, especially after the current Labor Government axed the Building Better Regions program, which delivered $56 million to Maranoa alone.

“Regional communities are the backbone of our country and programs such as these are pivotal to helping regional Australia continue to grow and thrive,” Mr Littleproud said.

“It’s important our electorate gets its fair share of funding from programs such as these, so I encourage all of our local community groups and organisations to submit their expressions of interest for the opening round of the Growing Regions Program.”

Expression of interest submissions close at 5.00pm AEST on August 1 2023. More information can be found at the Department of Infrastructure’s website.
