We are updating guidelines for future rounds of the Murray–Darling Basin Economic Development Program.

About the program

An extra $34 million for future rounds was announced on 4 September 2020.

The overall program will now provide up to $73 million in grants.

These grants will help eligible communities fund economic development projects to respond to the impact of water recovery activities under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

Outcomes for eligible communities will include:

  • more job opportunities
  • increased capacity to diversify and strengthen local economies
  • enhanced resilience, to manage current and future economic challenges and changes.

The survey on the draft guidelines for the program has now closed. We will publish the results of the consultation here shortly.

Next steps

We expect to open the next round of the Murray-Darling Basin Economic Development Program in early 2021.
