​The Regional Airports Program provides grants to improve the safety and accessibility of airports and aerodromes in regional areas of Australia. It will support critical air infrastructure that will:

  • improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers using regional airports or aerodromes
  • facilitate improved delivery of essential goods and services such as food supplies, health care and passenger air services
  • improve the connectivity of Australia’s regions to domestic and global market opportunities
  • meet the operational requirements of aeromedical and other emergency services in the region

Grants will be from $20,000 to $5 million to undertake essential works to improve aviation safety and access for regional communities.

Applications are now being taken for round 2 of the program, closing date 15 December 2020 5.00pm (AEDT).
