Growing Regions program - open for applications

Thursday, 13 July 2023

Federal Member for Hume, Angus Taylor is encouraging local community organisations and councils in Hume to apply for grants to build and improve community infrastructure to enhance the liveability of our community.

“Applications are now open for Growing Regions grants of between $500,000 and $15 million to upgrade existing or build new community facilities making our region a better place to live, work and raise a family,” Mr Taylor said.

“Eligible projects could include community and sporting facility upgrades that enhance the amenity of towns or projects that help drive stronger economic opportunities for the local community, for example by making regions more inviting for tourists and visitors.

Not-for-profit incorporated community organisations in regional areas, including sporting clubs, are eligible to apply for grants, as well as local councils in the following local government areas - Hilltops, Upper Lachlan, Goulburn Mulwaree and Wingecarribee.

“I am happy to assist any community organisation willing to put up their hands for funding, recognising there is only a short window of opportunity to get the necessary paperwork together ahead of applications closing on 1 August 2023.

Further details about the Growing Regions community infrastructure grants, including funding guidelines, can be obtained from my office or via email at

"I want to make sure our community has every chance to benefit from this latest funding opportunity.”
