Round three of the Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program has allocated more than $55,000 to benefit schools, community groups and associations in regional communities across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Inland Rail Director of Engagement, Environment and Property Rebecca Pickering said the program’s success along the whole rail corridor has provided a well deserved funding boost to worthy initiatives which build community prosperity.

“A key commitment of Inland Rail is to leave a positive legacy along the rail corridor and the Community Sponsorships and Donations program is just one example of how we seek to ensure regional communities benefit from this unique project,” Ms Pickering said.

The fourth round of funding applications for the program is now open and eligible groups can still apply for funding of between $1000 and $4000 for their project or service by 6:00pm (AEST) Friday 31 January 2020.

Grant applications are invited from individuals and organisations in regional centres along the corridor, not Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, to ensure regional areas receive maximum benefit.
