All tiers of government, business and communities help contribute to the success of our regions to make a difference to the everyday lives of Western Australians.

Through policy, services and programs like the Country Age Pension Fuel Card, the Local Content Adviser Network, and a range of Grants and Funding, the Department supports the regions to create prosperity for Western Australians and opportunities for future generations.

The Regional Development Portfolio, comprising the Western Australian Regional Development Trust; the Regional Development Council; the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development; and the State’s nine Regional Development Commissions work collaboratively to build strong regions with strong economies that benefit all Western Australians.
