The federal government of Australia has committed $15 billion to establish the National Reconstruction Fund (NRF). This program aims to extend financial economic diversification and transformation through co-investment plans that would assist opportunities and broader reforms to support growth across identified priority areas.
Overview and Funding Amounts
The NRF will be an independent and be governed by a board who will make independent investment decisions guided by an investment mandate. The NRF will finance projects that align with the identified 7 priority areas. Of the NRF’s $15 billion total funding, $8 billion will be allotted to the following:
- up to $3 billion for renewables and low emissions technologies
- $1.5 billion for medical manufacturing
- $1 billion for value-adding in resources
- $1 billion for critical technologies
- $1 billion for advanced manufacturing
- $500 million for value-adding in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food, and fibre
