Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program – Round 6
The Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program will enhance the safety and accessibility of aerodromes in remote and very remote areas of Australia, providing year round all weather access that will:
- improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers using remote and very remote airstrips
- facilitate improved delivery of essential goods and services such as food supplies, health care, community mail and passenger air services
- complement air services delivery to communities subsidised under the Australian Government’s Remote Aviation Access Program (RAAP) through the Remote Air Services Subsidy (RASS) Scheme, and/or
- meet operational requirements of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) or operators providing similar aeromedical services.
Safe, operational aerodromes are vital in the delivery of essential goods and services in remote and very remote communities, particularly where road access is unavailable, unreliable or disrupted for extended periods due to seasonal weather conditions. An effective airstrip, accessible all year round, improves the delivery of health care services such as those provided by the RFDS or other aeromedical providers, improves access to work and education opportunities and helps connect residents of remote communities.
There is a total of $8 million available for this grant round. There will be other grant rounds and we will publish the opening and closing dates and any other relevant information on business.gov.au and GrantConnect.
The maximum grant amount is $3 million, however it is expected that most grants will not exceed $1.5 million. The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs (grant percentage), unless
- you are a Priority Indigenous Location. In this case the grant amount will be up to 100% of eligible project costs
- you and a third party are both contributing to eligible project costs. In this case the grant amount will be up to 33.3 per cent of eligible project costs.
