First Nations peoples bear a higher burden of road trauma, and are nearly three times more likely to die in road crashes than other Australians. In line with governments’ commitment to the National Agreement on Closing the Gap, the Australian Government will create partnerships with First Nations peoples, communities and organisations to jointly develop culturally appropriate countermeasures to close the gap for First Nations peoples by improving road safety outcomes.

This grant opportunity is open January 2024 to March 2024 to allow the department time to build trusted relationships with First Nations organisations and communities to co-design a culturally appropriate national approach to community-led road safety initiatives.

The aim of this funding stream is to fund projects that will deliver local solutions for First Nations communities, and also support culturally relevant road safety messaging. Activities could include, but are not limited to, improving access to culturally appropriate road safety education, young driver training activities, support for First Nations peoples to obtain a driver’s licence, community group activities that improve road safety outcomes or education campaigns with relevant road
safety messages. Subject to consultation, the government intends these projects will:

  • ▪ improve access to road safety education and awareness for First Nations peoples
  • ▪ assist government to understand road safety priorities in First Nations communities and tailor solutions to match.

The Australian Government’s Housing Support Program (HSP) is one of a range of programs designed to help achieve National Housing Accord’s target of building 1.2 million new, well-located homes over 5 years from 1 July 2024. The HSP will support the delivery of increased housing supply by funding projects that seek to deliver enabling infrastructure, provide amenities to support new housing development or improve building planning capability.

This first Stream (HSP 1) is designed to provide resources to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of planning process, so that housing construction can commence sooner, support increasing housing in well-located areas, or encourage development in line with the national blueprint.

Applications can only be made by a state government, territory government or local government authority (LGA). Applications in partnership with other government and non-government entities are eligible to apply, but the lead applicant must be a state, territory or local government authority.

To be eligible, the project must improve planning capability. Examples of eligible projects could include, but are not limited to:

  • New pathways for planners and related professions to enter the industry
  • Tools to streamline planning systems and improve efficient decision making
  • Sharing of resources between local governments
  • Resources to support master planning and planning reform.

Planning capability projects can support the delivery of housing outcomes either directly (for example by increasing the efficiency of the development approval process) or indirectly (for example by increasing the workforce trained to do planning and related work).

Regional Precincts and Partnerships Program: Precinct Delivery - Stream 2 Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: $5 Million to $50 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=50011bdd-b69c-416a-af64-c84a60afdd69

The Regional Precincts and Partnerships Program seeks to deliver transformative investment in regional, rural and remote Australia based on the principles of unifying regional places, growing their economies and serving their communities.

The program will focus on a partnership approach, bringing together governments and communities to deliver regional precincts that are tailored to local needs and have a shared vision in how that precinct connects to the region.

This grant opportunity is part of the regional Precincts and Partnerships Program.

The Precinct Delivery grant opportunity provides funding to deliver one or more elements of a precinct. This could include enabling public infrastructure (roads, pathways, underground infrastructure), open spaces between elements, or a particular building/s that is the catalyst for, or complements, other investment within a precinct.

For Stream Two, the project is considered to be one or more elements of a precinct. This grant opportunity will provide funding for the delivery of projects, rather than entire precincts. This contrasts with Stream One, where the project is considered to be the planning and development of the whole precinct.

Partnerships are essential to the program, which has a focus on bringing together all interested parties to collaboratively plan or deliver precinct proposals. These partnerships are intended to be conglomerates of relevant entities as well as other local stakeholders, including but not limited to:

  • State and Territory government
  • Local government
  • Regional universities
  • Not-for-profit entities
  • First Nations groups
  • Regional Development Australia committees
  • Community organisations
  • Private enterprise

This grant opportunity is part of the regional Precincts and Partnerships Program.

The Precinct Development and Planning grant opportunity provides opportunities to develop a precinct idea through to investment-ready stage. The rationale for Stream One is to recognise that financial constraints can inhibit great concepts being explored further and developed into realistic, well-designed and planned projects.

The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity are to:

  • establish partnerships comprised of relevant government entities, community organisations and businesses that have a shared vision for a regional precinct

Black Spot Program Grant Closes: Ongoing Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://investment.infrastructure.gov.au/about/local-initiatives/black-spot-program

Road crashes are a major cost to Australians every year. Black Spot projects target those road locations where crashes are occurring. By funding measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at dangerous locations, the programme reduces the risk of crashes. Programmes of this sort are very effective, saving the community many times the cost of the relatively minor road improvements that are implemented

The Black Spot Programme makes an important contribution in reducing the national road toll under the National Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan.

The Australian Government has committed $500 million to the Black Spot Programme from 2014-15 to 2018-19, which includes an additional $200 million over two years from 2015-16 under the Infrastructure Growth Package to improve road safety across the nation.

The Government has announced changes to the programme’s eligibility criteria for 2015-16 and 2016-17 aimed at assisting local communities to compete for this additional funding over the next two years.

Under the new criteria, the minimum Benefit Cost Ratio for proposals has been reduced from 2:1 to 1:1. In addition, the minimum crash history of sites has been reduced from 3 to 2 casualty crashes over five years or 0.13 casualty crashes per kilometre per year over 5 years.

The criteria has also been amended to allow more funding for the proactive treatment of unsafe roads. Consultative Panels will able to allocate up to 40% of funding to sites on the basis of a road safety audit.

The Government has also guaranteed that at least 50 per cent of funding provided over the next two years will be dedicated to fixing roads in regional Australia.
