The Streamlining for Growth Program (SfG) was established in 2016 and administered by the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA). The program facilitated faster (and more cost-effective) permit ready delivery of employment and residential land across Victoria. It provided support and capacity building for councils in regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
The program will finish in 2023 after the allocation of around $45 million to support over 350 strategic planning projects across Victoria since its inception.
Councils with previously successful applications will have already received their SfG grants to enable a smooth progression of their proposed projects.
All approved grants with VPA staff support will continue to receive their ‘in-kind’ support from the VPA as per the funding commitment.
