Regional Growth Fund
On Friday 2 March 2018 the Hon. Dr John McVeigh MP, Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, launched the Australian Government’s Regional Growth Fund. The $272.2 million fund will provide grants of $10 million or more for major transformational projects which support long-term economic growth and create jobs in regions undergoing structural adjustment.
You will note that in the Program Guidelines applicants are encouraged to contact their RDA for assistance in developing their application. I encourage you to make contact with Liz Perkins who will be happy to work with you to strengthen your project by providing economic modelling, a letter of support and undertaking peer review of your proposal.
