The program will focus on a partnership approach, bringing together governments and communities to plan and deliver regional precincts that are tailored to local needs and have a shared vision in how the precinct connects to the region. Partners can be from government, First Nations groups, community organisations, regional universities or private enterprise.

Regional precincts or ‘places with a purpose’ are user-defined geographic areas with a specific shared need or theme. Regional precincts may include business districts, neighbourhoods, activity centres, commercial hubs or community and recreational areas. They will be located in renewal areas and growth areas in regional centres, regional corridors, regional cities, as well as smaller town centres that serve as service hubs in more remote communities.

There are two streams of the regional Precincts and Partnerships Program which are delivered as two separate grant opportunities.

The objective of stream one is to activate partnerships to jointly deliver precinct plans.

The intended outcomes of stream one are to:

  • establish partnerships comprised of relevant government entities, community organisations and businesses that have a shared vision for a regional precinct
  • deliver precinct plans that are tailored to their local contexts and based on community feedback and engagement
  • support precinct plans to become investment ready
  • contribute to the Australian Government’s current policy priorities, including but not limited to Closing the Gap, transition to a net zero economy, Australia’s emission reduction goals, social and affordable housing, and National Cultural Policy.
