COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund

The Australian Government has established a $1 billion COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund to support regions, communities and industry sectors that have been disproportionately affected by the Coronavirus crisis. The initiatives announced under the Fund are supporting industries including aviation, agriculture, fisheries, tourism and the arts.

How does the Fund work?

To allocate the funding, the Deputy Prime Minister chaired a Ministerial Advisory Group, which met to consider proposals submitted from across a number of portfolios.

Funding has been channeled through existing mechanisms where possible to ensure support is provided quickly. Initiatives under the Fund are administered by the department or agency with the relevant sector responsibilities.
