  • 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 Aviation Access Program (RAAP) through the Remote Air Services Subsidy (RASS) Scheme
  • meet operational requirements of the RFDS or operators providing similar aeromedical services

The grant will be up to 50% of eligible project costs, unless:

  • where the applicant (you) and a third party (could include State/Territory or local government, or neighbouring cattle station) are both contributing to eligible project costs, the grant amount will be up to 33.3 per cent of eligible project costs or
  • where the applicant (you) meets the definition in these Guidelines as an Indigenous Owned and/or Operated Aerodrome, the grant will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs.
