$5m in regional development grants on offer

Businesses have been encouraged to apply for the fifth round of the Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants program, which will see $5 million invested towards regional projects that support jobs and business opportunities.

Funding is available for projects that support jobs, expand or diversify industry, develop skills, increase business productivity and attract new investment to the regions.

The State Government has allocated $45.8m over eight years towards the RED Grants program.

The first four rounds of the program are helping to deliver 263 business and community-driven projects across regional WA.

Applications are now open and close on August 24, 2022.

More information is available at drd.wa.gov.au/rfr/REDG/ or through the State’s nine Regional Development Commissions.

“More than $26 million has been allocated to 263 projects through the previous four rounds of the RED Grants program, with initiatives including industry development, Aboriginal industry development, agricultural diversification and tourism expansion,” Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan said.

“We encourage businesses and organisations in the regions to consider how RED grant funding could be used to support or enhance their business or community project.”
