The Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund (RJIF) is the Victorian Government’s overarching regional development package. It invests in growing jobs, building infrastructure and strengthening communities in regional Victoria.
Regional Development Victoria (RDV) manages the RJIF’s three programs:
- the Regional Infrastructure Fund (RIF)
- the Regional Jobs Fund (RJF)
- the Stronger Regional Communities Plan (SRCP).
The Government welcomes grant proposals from regional and rural local government authorities, government agencies, not-for-profits, community groups and businesses. This includes from businesses in high-growth sectors such as: medical and new energy technology; food and fibre; transport, defence and construction technology; international education; and professional services.
See the application guidelines, information sheets and Frequently Asked Questions for more information. You are encouraged to call your local RDV office early, to talk through your proposal and how RJIF programs might be able to support your project before you draft an application.
