EOIs now open for $100 million Queensland Betterment Fund
$100 million is now available for communities impacted by the North and Far North Queensland Monsoon Trough to repair damaged infrastructure to a stronger standard, thanks to the Queensland Betterment Fund.
This is the largest pool of funding ever approved for Betterment in Australia, and for the first time has been made available for state owned infrastructure.
Eligible councils impacted by the North and Far North Queensland Monsoon Trough and state agencies can now put forward their expressions of interest to identify priority projects.
On top of the Betterment Fund, eligible councils can also submit EOI’s under a $14.5 million Water and Sewerage Infrastructure Program to restore these essential services in areas impacted by the Monsoon Trough.
The deadline for Expressions of Interest is 19 July 2019.
The Betterment Fund and the Water and Sewerage Infrastructure Programs are jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
