Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program Round 10

ClosedGrant Closed: 15th of December 2023 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $3,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=2d322325-09a9-4c12-b97d-a374c6e27d6d

The objective this grant program is to enhance the safety and accessibility of aerodromes in remote and very remote areas of Australia. Safe, operational aerodromes are vital in the delivery of essential goods and services in remote and very remote communities, particularly where road access is unavailable, unreliable or disrupted for extended periods due to seasonal weather conditions. An effective airstrip, accessible all year round, improves the delivery of health care services such as those provided by the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) or other aeromedical providers, improves access to work and education opportunities and helps connect residents of remote communities.

The intended outcome of the program is improved safety and air access for remote airstrips that will:

  • improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers using remote and very remote airstrips
  • facilitate improved delivery of essential goods and services such as food supplies, health care, community mail and passenger air services
  • complement air services delivery to communities subsidised under the Australian Government’s Remote Air Services Subsidy (RASS) Scheme, and/or
  • meet operational requirements of the RFDS or operators providing similar aeromedical services.

The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs (grant percentage), unless:

  • where the applicant (you) and a third party (could include State/Territory or local government, or other entity) are both contributing to eligible project costs, the grant amount for this opportunity may be reduced to 33.3 per cent of eligible project costs, or
  • where the applicant (you) meets the definition in the guidelines as an Indigenous Owned and/or Operated Aerodrome, the grant will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs.
