What is Royalties for Regions?
Royalties for Regions underpins the State Government's long-term commitment to developing Western Australia's regional areas into vibrant regions with strong economies.
Over the past eight years, the Department has built a strong platform for regional investment through the Royalties for Regions program.
Since December 2008, Royalties for Regions has invested over $6.9 billion of the State's mining and onshore petroleum royalties into more than 3,700 projects, to significantly improve infrastructure and services across regional Western Australia.
Royalties for Regions is about strengthening and growing our regions and creating significant benefits.
The Regional Development Strategy 2016-25 launched in June 2016, sets a clear structure for future Royalties for Regions investment, with a commitment to invest through major strategic programs that will deliver the headline outcomes of jobs growth, economic growth and capable people.
It responds to the State's changing economic conditions and brings a firm focus on establishing the socio-economic foundations for development and driving growth and new investment in the regions.
