The Regional Grants Scheme is a Royalties for Regions initiative that aims to improve the economic and community infrastructure and services in regional Western Australia. It is aimed at bigger projects that will help attract investment, increase job opportunities and assist in improving the quality of life in the regions.

Regional Grants Scheme

The Regional Grants Scheme invests in projects which assist in attracting investment, increasing jobs, and improving quality of life to improve economic and community infrastructure and services in the Pilbara Region.

Funding is available to assist the development of infrastructure, services and community projects intended to build vibrant regions with strong economies. These are key outcomes of the Pilbara Regional Investment Blueprint; a plan that will redefine the region to one of a diverse economy with modern and vibrant communities.

The Regional Grants Scheme is administered by the Pilbara Development Commission as part of the Royalties for Regions Program.

The Regional Grants Scheme’s broad objectives are to:

  1. Retain and build the benefits of regional communities.
  2. Support improved, relevant and accessible local services.
  3. Enable communities to deliver a sustainable economic and social future.
  4. Assist regional communities to prosper through increased employment, business and industry development opportunities.
  5. Increase capacity for local strategic planning and decision-making.

The Regional Grants Scheme provides grants for the development of infrastructure, services and community projects intended to build vibrant regions with strong economies.
