Goldfields-Esperance Revitalisation

Goldfields-Esperance Revitalisation

The Goldfields-Esperance Revitalisation Fund is a Royalties for Regions initiative that invests in priority projects to enable economic and social development in our region.

The Goldfields-Esperance Revitalisation (GER) Fund is intended to assist in building the social and infrastructure platform for economic development and drive growth and new investment in the Goldfields-Esperance Region. 

Due to State Government budgetary constraints, there is no residual GER funding available to allocate to new projects.
