Investing in our cities and suburbs

Today the Forecast Funding Opportunities for the Thriving Suburbs and urban Precincts and Partnerships Programs (uPPP) have been released.

These forecast opportunities have been provided for planning purposes and to help stakeholders start to prepare, ahead of the programs opening to accept applications.

The Australian Government is dedicated to delivering investment in our cities and suburbs.

The Thriving Suburbs Program will fund local infrastructure across our cities and suburbs, so more people have access to important community infrastructure such as sporting and cultural facilities.

The uPPP will fund planning and investment in our cities and suburbs, based on the principles of unifying urban places, growing economies and serving communities. 

This program will support the delivery of best-practice investment in urban infrastructure, connecting people and communities to services and opportunities that improve liveability, equity and productivity.

More information on these programs is available at

Quotes attributable to Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Minister Catherine King:

“The Albanese Government knows that enabling more communities to better plan and deliver community infrastructure linked to local priorities, including in the development of precincts, is critical to supporting great cities and suburbs.

“We are delivering fair and transparent community infrastructure programs for urban and regional Australia.”
