The Latrobe Valley Authority Community and Facility Fund provides a broader range of infrastructure related grants within the Liveable Latrobe Valley and the Socially active streams.

Liveable Latrobe Valley

These two infrastructure streams will support projects that will make the Latrobe Valley a better place to live and visit. Supported projects may include (but are not limited to) town beautification and streetscape projects, infrastructure that connects communities, linking recreation to retail precincts, attracting visitors, heritage and cultural initiatives of economic significance to the local community such as renewal of historic buildings and sites, arts and cultural centres or resource facilities, development of shared community spaces, upgrades to community spaces that enhance wellbeing and social connectedness and the development or renewal of visitor attractions.

Community Space Upgrades
