Community and Facility Fund

In November 2016, the Victorian Government established the Latrobe Valley Community Facility Fund to support projects that would improve the amenity and liveability of the Latrobe Valley. The aim of the Fund was to make the Latrobe Valley a great place to live, work and visit.

In July 2018, a review of the program identified the need to broaden the range and variety of projects and activities to better achieve its aim.

The renamed Community and Facility Fund guidelines have been updated to include targeted support for high priority projects, improved project planning, larger scale events, capacity building and an increased focus on community, culture, the visitor economy and improvement to the natural environment.

The Latrobe Valley Community and Facility Fund (the Fund) will support the Latrobe Valley region to build strong and resilient communities by investing in community-led initiatives and partnerships under the following:

  • Liveable Latrobe Valley; and
  • Socially Active Latrobe Valley
