  2. Retaining benefits in regional communities
  3. Improving services to regional communities
  4. Attaining sustainability
  5. Expanding opportunity
  6. Growing prosperity.

The Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission administers two funding programs, the Regional Grants Scheme and the Community Chest Fund, made possible by Royalties for Regions.

The Goldfield-Esperance Regional Grants Scheme has contributed over $13.82 M to the region since 2008.

The Goldfields-Esperance Community Chest Fund has contributed over $1.4 M in small grants to the community since 2015.

Royalties for Regions has also underpinned a number of major State Government investments in the region through the Goldfields Revitalisation Fund.
