The Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations Program is designed to support communitites along the Inland Rail alignment, by making voluntary financial contributions to eligible community groups running events, projects and activities which contribute to the local and regional prosperity, well-being and sustainability.

Examples of events, projects and activities may include community resilience-building days; establishing a mentoring program for young entrepreneurs in the area; hosting guest speakers at a local Chamber breakfast.

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

The first round of funding applications for the 2020 program is now open and eligible groups can apply for funding of between $1000 and $4000 for their project or service by 6:00pm (AEST) 30 April 2020.
