Funding Primary Access Infrastructure for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS) funding is a component of the statewide TIDS funding program aimed at supporting the local transport infrastructure needs of regional, rural and remote communities throughout Queensland.

ATSI TIDS is provided to local governments by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for the upgrade of transport infrastructure that improves primary access (road, air and sea) to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities throughout Queensland. 

An annual state-wide funding allocation of $8.2 million across Queensland is provided to improve access via transport infrastructure such as roads, aerodromes, barge ramps and jetties. ATSI TIDS funding is managed through local Transport and Main Roads District Offices.

A number of Aboriginal Shire Councils receive an annual allocation of ATSI TIDS through membership with established Regional Roads and Transport Groups under the Roads and Transport Alliance. These Councils have decision making authority over the programming of their ATSI TIDS allocation within their local government area.
