Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program - Phase 4

Grant Closes: 30th of June 2024 - 5:00 pm Value: $15,698 to $11.7839 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=b21c06c4-f7e3-4fe7-9b97-13ae6e6dcd46

The purpose of the LRCI Program is to support local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across the nation, supporting jobs and delivering benefits to local communities.

Phase 4 of the LRCI Program will open from 1 July 2023 and Grant Agreements will be sent to eligible Funding Recipients for review and signature. Once the Grant Agreements have been returned and executed by the Department, councils will be invited to submit project nominations via a work schedule to the department.

From 1 July 2023, the eligible construction time period (ECTP) commences. Project construction can only begin once Project Nominations are approved by the Department. Projects are required to be physically completed by 30 June 2025.

Phase 4 of the LRCI Program continues to be a temporary, targeted measure supporting local infrastructure, jobs, firms, and procurement. As with the earlier Phases of the LRCI Program, Eligible Funding Recipients can select a broad range of projects to fund so that communities can continue to be provided with the infrastructure they require. It is expected that Eligible Funding Recipients will use local businesses and workforces to deliver projects wherever possible to ensure direct benefits to local communities.

Only Eligible Funding Recipients are able to participate in Phase 4 of the LRCI Program.

Eligible Funding Recipients will receive a letter of offer to participate in Phase 4 of the LRCI Program:

  • Where eligibility for the Part A $500 million component is met, the letter of offer will include reference to this separate funding amount.
  • Where eligibility for the Part B $250 million component is met, the letter of offer will include reference to this separate funding amount.

The Eligible Funding Recipients have been selected for this grant opportunity as the intention is to fund local communities directly. A list of funding recipients, and their funding allocations is available on the Department’s website here.
