Financial acquittal

Organisations receiving funding under the Building our Regions program have responsibilities when acquitting project funding in accordance with the funding agreement.

The Financial acquittal and assurance policy (PDF icon 85 KB) will also apply to some councils.

Building our Regions funding acknowledgement guide

All local governments that receive funds through the Building our Regions program are required to acknowledge the funding provided by the Queensland Government and the program.

The funding acknowledgement guide sets out how local governments are expected to acknowledge their project funding and should be read in conjunction with the funding instrument.

  • social media and multimedia material including websites, videos, and other promotional items
  • invitations or registration brochures and conference programs
  • brochures and posters
  • project and event signage
  • TV, radio and newspaper coverage by the media
  • TV, radio and newspaper advertisements
  • printed documents associated with the project

Please contact the Building our Regions team to arrange approval or to clarify whether or not acknowledgement and/or approvals are needed.

Funding acknowledgement statement

All materials (other than social media posts) prepared for a Queensland Government funded project must include a funding acknowledgement statement. The statement to be used depends on whether or not there are other funding contributors, including the Australian Government.

Local governments must use one of the following statements:

Financial contributors Funding acknowledgement statement
Building our Regions program only “Proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program.”
Building our Regions and other contributors (excluding the Australian Government) “Proudly funded by the Queensland Government in association with (other contributor name) and (other contributor name).”
Building our Regions and the Australian Government “Jointly funded by the Australian Government and Queensland Government.”
Building our Regions, the Australian Government and other contributors “Jointly funded by the Australian Government and Queensland Government in association with (other contributor name) and (other contributor name).”


Note: When there are multiple financial contributors, not including the Australian Government, they should be named in order of the value of their contributions.

Project signage template

Local governments must also acknowledge funding contributions through signage at the project site. Local governments are to ensure approved construction signage is installed at the project site when construction starts. Please read the Funding acknowledgement guide (PDF icon 575 KB) for further details.

Construction signage must be prepared according to the Building our Regions Signage Style Guide and templates, which can be accessed below:
