Supporting Councils and Creating Jobs: Infrastructure Grants Open

Regional and shire councils have the opportunity to improve community infrastructure with a $5 million grants round now open.

The NT Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development’s Strategic Local Government Infrastructure Fund supports councils with low rate bases to deliver key infrastructure projects and carry out repairs and maintenance.

Funds can be used to purchase plant and equipment; improve parks, playgrounds, sporting and recreational areas; re-seal community roads; upgrade cemetery and communications infrastructure; repair and maintain swimming pools, staff housing, council offices and facilities; and improve storm water and waste management systems.

Councils are able to combine funding sources to deliver the infrastructure projects.

Applications close on 1 November 2019.
