The Albanese Government is supporting our local community by providing $743,911 to Frankston City Council through Phase 4 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.


The LRCI program supports councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects in their region, creating jobs and long-lasting benefits for communities.


The Albanese Government is allocating $500 million in accordance with advice to councils prior to the election in May 2022. Councils across Australia will be able to spend this funding on priority local road and community infrastructure projects.


Frankston Council will be able to access their Phase 4 funding allocations from July, with projects to be delivered by June 2025. Guidelines and grant agreements will be finalised by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts over the coming months.


Further details about the program are available on the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program website.
