  • 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.

There will be $45 million available for the first round of funding, to cover no more than 50% of eligible project costs. The minimum grant amount is $20,00, and maximum $5 million.
