Regional businesses have an opportunity to share in $10 million of funding with the release of the seventh round of the State Government’s Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants program. 

The funding supports locally-driven projects in regional Western Australia.

It is available for projects that support jobs, expand or diversify industry, develop skills, increase business productivity and attract new investment to the State’s nine regions, from the Kimberley to the Great Southern. 

Since 2018, the State Government has committed more than $55 million over 10 years towards the RED Grants program, diversifying regional economies and creating hundreds of new jobs in the regions. 

Each of the nine Regional Development Commissions (RDC) manage the grant round process for their region. 

Round seven applications are now open and close on June 26, 2024. More program information, including guidelines and application details, is available here. 

“The program has supported 355 approved projects across the first six rounds, for initiatives such as boosting retail and commercial operations, industry development and diversification, Aboriginal industry development and tourism expansion,” says Regional Development Minister Don Punch. 

“Double the usual funds are available this round, so I encourage regional businesses and organisations to examine the funding opportunities on offer through this dedicated regional program.” 

CCIWA’s Grant Finder can help you identify which local, State or Federal Government grants best suit your business needs.
