Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants

The Regional Economic Development Grants (RED Grants) program is a $28.8 million (over five years) State Government initiative that invests in community driven projects to stimulate economic growth and development in regional Western Australia. 

It is part of the State Government’s $4 billion job-creating Royalties for Regions investment across regional WA.

Delivered locally by the State's nine Regional Development Commissions, up to $250,000 is available for individual projects that promote sustainable jobs, partnerships, productivity, skills and capability, as well as stimulate new investment and industry diversification.

The grants will boost investment in local regional projects that contribute to population and economic growth initiatives, local marketing and innovation pilots, and importantly, are driven by the community.

The objectives of the RED Grants Program include:
  • Sustainable jobs growth;
  • Increasing productivity;
  • Expanding or diversifying industry;
  • Developing skills or capabilities; and
  • Attracting new investment in the region.
