Building Better Regional Cities (BBRC) Program

The BBRC Program aimed to facilitate the provision of affordable housing for low to moderate-income earners in regional Australia. The Australian Government provided funding to local councils for infrastructure projects to expedite the release of land, and support an increase in affordable housing. Local councils were required to co-contribute to the project by providing discounts/rebates on the sale price for eligible purchasers.

The BBRC Program funding ceased on 30 June 2014, with total funding of $106.3 million provided over three years from 2011-12. Fifteen projects across four states (New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland) were funded and have now been finalised.
