Royalties for Regions funding now open

Date published: 11/01/2016

Applications are now open for the latest round of funding through the State Government's Royalties for Regions Regional Grants Scheme and Community Chest Fund. Both programs are for community, public and not for profit organisations to improve and develop infrastructure and services to the region.
 

Regional Development Minister, Terry Redman, announced in late December that regional communities would benefit from a 50% increase to both the scheme and the fund, with $15 million available under the Regional Grants Scheme and $5 million under the Community Chest Fund across WA. Each of the nine Regional Development Commissions will receive $1.67 million from the Regional Grants Scheme and $556,000 from the Community Chest Fund. Both rounds of funding  open on Monday 11 January, 2016 and close on 17 March 2016.

Further information on this funding round is available from the GEDC Royalties for Regions page.
