Overview

Mother and chil in regional Victoria

The Stronger Regional Communities Program (SRCP) aims to support rural and regional towns in attracting families and young people to live and work in regional Victoria. It will do so by investing in community-led initiatives and partnerships that create or enhance the conditions for economic growth and build resilient, diversified and sustainable economies.

Strong communities are characterised by high levels of social and economic participation. They demonstrate effective decision-making and strong networks and are attractive to people considering moving to live and work.

The SRCP is currently closed and the fund is not currently accepting applications.

Objectives of Program

The objectives of the SRCP program are to:

  • improve the livability of regional and rural towns in order to attract and retain families and young people;
  • increase community capability and provide increased opportunities to collaborate, innovate and drive change, and
  • increase community resilience to social, economic and environmental shocks.

Funding Details

Activities that may be considered include but are not limited to:

  • supporting locally-led partnerships to address economic development challenges and grow opportunities
  • establishing or growing community and small enterprise projects
  • community strengthening projects which incorporate an infrastructure component
  • increased local civic and economic development skills
  • collaboration that results in local economic development or community resilience initiatives to flourish
  • increasing local community participation, diversity and collaboration in planning, decision making and regional priority projects
  • population retention and attraction activities that attract unskilled and skilled labour, professionals and businesses into the regions
  • initiatives that build skills, increase participation and grow local economic programs
  • engaging community groups to welcome new and potential families to the area
  • using existing networks to identify and promote employment opportunities.
