The Regional Airports Program provides regional airport/aerodrome owners/operators with grants of up to $5 million to enhance aviation safety and accessibility.

The Regional Airports Program will improve the safety and accessibility of airports or aerodromes in regional areas of Australia by supporting 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.

There is a total of $45 million available for this grant round. There will be other grant rounds and dates and any other relevant information will be published on and GrantConnect.

The minimum grant amount is $20,000. The maximum grant amount is $5 million. The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs, unless you (your airport) and a third party are both contributing to eligible project costs. In this case, the grant amount will be up to 33.3 per cent of eligible project costs.
