The Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, the Hon Dr John McVeigh, has announced that 136 projects will receive grant funding of $208.2m to support community projects in regional Australia under the Infrastructure Projects Stream of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).
