Round Two Opens for Stronger Regions

Councils and incorporated not-for-profit organisations in the electorate of Murray can now apply for funding of between $20,000 and $10 million for capital infrastructure projects under Round Two of the National Stronger Regions Fund.

Federal Member for Murray, Dr Sharman Stone is encouraging all eligible councils and organisations to apply. The National Stronger Regions Fund is designed to strengthen communities and deliver economic growth in regional Australia.

“Murray electorate did not have a successful project in round one of the program, so it is important that those who are eligible for a project put together an application. A new project could do great things for all of our communities.

“Changes have been made to the criteria for Round Two of the program as feedback from Round One, suggested the criteria did not suit the majority of applying organisations,” Sharman Stone said.

“Under Round Two, $25 million will be put aside for those projects seeking funding of $1 million or less. This should create more opportunities for smaller councils and organisations to match the funding.

“Applicants may submit two applications,” Sharman Stone said.

The Federal Government is providing $212 million to successful applicants under Round One of the program.

More information on the program, including on the application process for Round Two, is available at If anyone has any further questions please contact my office on (03) 5821 5371,” Sharman Stone said.
