Infrastructure Development Fund

Published on Tuesday, 26 March 2024 at 10:00:45 AM

The $80 million Infrastructure Development Fund has been allocated equally between metropolitan and regional projects ($40 million each).

The Infrastructure Development Fund consists of three funding programs with one relevant for regional areas: Unlocking Regional Accommodation Opportunities

Infrastructure Development Fund Stream 3

Unlocking Regional Accommodation Opportunities

The third funding stream has been designed as an infrastructure investment program to address infrastructure constraints in the water, wastewater and electricity network at a precinct or strategic site scale impacting the delivery of accommodation for key workers and community housing in regional areas.

Applications under this funding stream will be based on evaluation of a business case, including consideration of co-contribution opportunities. 

Mining/resource worker accommodation and proposals outside of existing centres, townsites or communities are ineligible for funding.

The stream is open to developers/landowners, community housing organisations and local government to make applications. Applications from a group of developers/landowners (including local government) within a precinct are encouraged. 

For a project to be eligible for funding, it should be located within (or in the vicinity of) an existing regional centre or townsite within regional Western Australia (excluding the Perth and Peel Metropolitan region).

Applications are open until 6 September 2024 unless the funding allocation is exhausted earlier.
