The Regional Economic Development Grants (RED Grants) program is a $40.8 million over seven years State Government initiative that invests in locally driven projects to stimulate job creation and economic growth in regional Western Australia.
It is part of the State Government’s job-creating investment across regional WA.
Delivered locally by the State's nine Regional Development Commissions, up to $250,000 is available 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.
The grants will boost investment in local regional projects that contribute to population and economic growth initiatives and innovation pilots, and importantly, are driven by the community.
