Economic Development (RED) Grants
Applications for the Round 5 funding are now open.
Grants program is a State Government initiative that invests in locally driven
projects that support efforts to create long-term economic growth and job
sustainability in our regions.
Government is investing $45.8 million over eight years towards the RED Grants
program for projects that will directly benefit regional communities.
the nine Regional Development Commissions (RDC) manage the grant round process
for their region and will provide advice to applicants during the application process.
applicants can apply for Round 5 of RED Grant funding for individual projects
that contribute to increasing or sustaining jobs, expanding or diversifying
industry, developing skills or capability, increasing business productivity and
attracting new investment to the regions.
$26.4 million has been allocated towards 263 approved projects across the nine
regions from previous rounds of the RED Grants Program for initiatives
including industry development/expansion, aboriginal industry development,
agricultural diversification, and tourism expansion.
