The next funding phase of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program, totalling $750 million, is now available for councils across Australia to nominate projects.
Phase 4 funding allocations include an additional $250 million targeted to improve rural, regional and outer urban roads.
Projects funded under Phase 4 are expected to be completed by 30 June 2025.
All councils have now received their Grant Agreement, and the Phase 4 Program Guidelines have been published on the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts web page (Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program resources | Infrastructure Investment Program), along with a suite of updated program resources. All funding recipients are encouraged to visit the page to become familiar with the resources and keep up to date as changes are made.
Councils should contact the Department by emailing LRCIP@infrastructure.gov.au if they have any questions about the grant process.
