  • Projects should aim to make better use of existing transport resources.
  • Consideration will be given to projects that provide information, transport related capacity building, subsidies or trial services.
  • The program cannot fund the purchase of vehicles.

All Local Government Areas in the Northern Inland are eligible. Partnerships with other organisations are encouraged - for example initiatives that include state agencies, local councils, transport operators and/or community organisations.

Eligible organisations include:

  • non-profit community based organisations
  • incorporated associations
  • local councils
