Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants


Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants

Applications for the Round 3 funding round are now closed. 

The RED Grants program is a State Government initiative that invests in community-driven projects that support efforts to create long-term economic growth and job sustainability in our regions.

The State Government's Royalties for Regions program will invest $28.8 million towards the RED Grants program over five years for projects that will directly benefit regional communities. 

Each of the Regional Development Commissions (RDC) manage the grant round process for their region and will provide advice to applicants during the application process.

Eligible applicants can apply for round 3 of RED Grant funding for individual projects that contribute to sustainable jobs, expand or diversify industry, develop skills and capability, attract new investment or maximise recovery from COVID-19 impacts to the region.

Over $13 million has been invested towards 137 approved projects across the nine regions from rounds one and two of the RED Grants program. 

A list of successful RED Grants from round one and two can be located via the relevant RDC websites (links below).
