Applications are now being sought for Round 10 of the Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program, which will provide up to $12 million in grant funding for airstrips in remote areas nationwide.

Applications for Round 10 of the Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program can be lodged by local governments and owner and/or operators of an existing aerodrome in remote areas, with applications closing at 5pm AEDT on 15 December 2023.
