The Murray–Darling Basin Economic Development Program is supporting economic development projects in identified communities impacted by water recovery under the Basin Plan.
Funding will help eligible communities to develop their economies, increase job opportunities, and enhance their resilience to manage current and future economic challenges.
To select communities eligible for funding under this program, we have considered information including research by the Murray–Darling Basin Authority in its Northern Basin review — social and economic condition reports and 2017 Basin Plan evaluation.
