Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants
The RED 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.
The State Government is investing $50.85 million over nine years towards the RED Grants program for projects that will directly benefit regional communities.
Eligible applicants can apply for 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.
More than $31.9 million has been allocated towards 317 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.
Each of the nine Regional Development Commissions (RDC) manage the grant round process for their region and will provide advice to applicants during the application process.
Applications for Round 6 closed on 30 June 2023.
