Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program
As the closest tier of government to the community, local governments have a critical role in delivering vital services and ensuring the quality of life for communities across Australia. Local governments are now also playing a key role in protecting the community from the impacts of COVID-19.
The Australian Government has committed $500 million to the Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program) to support jobs, businesses and the resilience of local economies.
From 1 July 2020, councils will be able to access funding to support delivery of priority local road and community infrastructure projects.
